Default How does charitable car donation work?

I have a '98 Sentra with 128k miles I have been driving to work that is going to need some work. Rather than try and sell it for $500-$1000--and deal with the folks who would be buying a car that price--I'd just as soon donate it. How does that work?

Do they have to sell it first and let me know how much they get for it before I can deduct that amount from my taxes, or is it done from NADA or book value? I looked at the kidney foundation page and didn't immediately see an answer. Anyone done this? How does it work?
