How Your Car Helps

When you donate a car to Charity Cars, running or not, 100% of your donation goes to our charity and helps us provide the gift of transportation to a family in need. Cars that do not qualify to be given to a family are sold and help fund repairs to program cars. This way, even if your car does not run, you are helping a family receive a reliable, working car.

Your Donation Changes the Lives Of:

  • Victims of Domestic Violence
  • The Medically Needy
  • Victims of Natural Disasters
  • Military Veterans
  • Struggling Families
  • The Working Poor

Car Donations That Make A Difference

Charity Cars’ experience with recipients is that the receipt of a vehicle donation has a profound effect upon their outlook on life. When we donate a car to these deserving people they seem to experience a rebirth of hope and self-esteem leading to renewed energy and ambition to succeed. Many individuals who have received donated vehicles have even expressed the feeling that they have been given a second chance at life. Few vehicle donation programs can impact the quality of life of the disadvantaged as immediately and dramatically as the Charity Cars donation program can.

Year after year, Charity Cars leads the nation in providing free vehicles to struggling families all across America. The relationship of the American people with their automobiles has traditionally been a deep-rooted love affair. The automobile has been and continues to be a symbol of personal freedom and self-sufficiency. This may explain, in part, why the Charity Cars donation program has been so enthusiastically embraced by the general public and has elicited so many vehicle donations. Many donors report that they can empathize with the poor who lack a vehicle in our car-dependent society, having had the experience themselves.

About the Charity Cars Donation Program

Charity Cars began pairing donated cars with families in 1996. Our mission is to assist disadvantaged families as they are transitioning from a life of dependency to a life of self-sufficiency. We are a 501(C) (3) non-profit organization; and we are the first car donation charity of its kind in the nation.

Charity Cars’ donation program has been featured on Oprah, ABC’s Good Morning America, CBS Morning News, the Montel Williams Show as well as national publications, such as People Magazine, The Non-Profit Times, The Chronicle of Philanthropy and the Associated Press, to name a few.
