It’s not too late to get a tax deduction by donating your car, truck or van to the National Kidney Foundation

Dear Editor:

There is still time to get a tax deduction — and help save a life– by donating your unwanted car, truck or van to “America’s #1 choice for car donations,” the National Kidney Foundation of New York/New Jersey. The Foundation will pick up the vehicle free of charge and issue a letter that can be used for tax purposes.

The contribution will assist the National Kidney Foundation of NY/NJ, a non-profit organization that relies solely on public donations to help improve the care and treatment of the one in four people afflicted with kidney, urological and hypertensive diseases through advances in detection, diagnosis and treatment.

The scope of its mission is evident in the fact that nearly 6,000 people are currently awaiting kidney transplants in the New York/New Jersey metro area. Through programs funded by the public, including organ donor awareness, cutting edge research and support efforts that help families and patients, the National Kidney Foundation of NY/NJ is a crucial resource that touches the lives of thousands of people who may be family, friends or neighbors.

The National Kidney Foundation is dedicated to the treatment and cure of kidney and urinary tract diseases, improving the health and well-being of individuals and families affected by these diseases, and increasing the availability of all organs for transplantations. The Foundation receives no government support and relies solely on the generosity of corporations and individuals. The Foundation also welcomes gifts of real estate and appreciated securities.

For more information on how you can make a donation and help save lives, call the National Kidney Foundation of NY/NJ at 1-800-63-DONATE or log on at
