When you donate your vehicle to Minnesota Public Radio, you’re driving public radio further. Vehicles donated to MPR fuel the trusted news, thoughtful conversations, and hand-picked music that is an essential part of your day.

Donating a car is fast, easy, and secure. MPR accepts any vehicle – running or not – including cars, trucks, boats, RVs, motorcycles, and more. We partner with our public radio colleagues at Car Talk Vehicle Donation Services to ensure that your beloved vehicle is in good hands and that your experience is convenient, efficient, and even fun.
