Charity Cars

Charity Cars was the first nonprofit of its kind in the United States when it began accepting car donations in 1996. The Charity Cars mission is to provide free vehicles to disadvantaged families. Charity Cars is helping families across the nation who are struggling to make a transition from dependency to self sufficiency. With your California car donation, families can have the opportunity to live fulfilling lives again. The Charity Cars organization has had a huge effect on the way struggling families look at life. When presented with a vehicle donation, families who are disadvantaged seem to shift their outlook and experience and focus on hope. Self esteem and ambition to succeed begin to rise and energy is abundant. Many of the families helped by Charity Cars have said a car gave them a second chance at life.

Donations System

By developing and implementing their National Car Donations System, Charity Cars now has the ability to process California car donations. California residents can call Charity Cars to arrange the a pick up the vehicle they want to donate, or use the car donation form. The Charity Cars free vehicle program offers a solution to the transportation dilemma that so many families are experiencing.

Donations Accepted

Charity Cars accepts a variety of vehicles as donations into their free vehicle program. Charity Cars will accept used and junk vehicles. You can donate your car, truck, sport utility vehicle, airplane or boat to the program. However, boats and airplanes will not be used as a free vehicle for disadvantaged families. Vehicles that can not be used as gifts will be auctioned and the proceeds will go toward paying for the cost of towing, vehicle maintenance and other things required for the Charity Cars program to operate.

Helping Families

With your help, families across the United States who are victims of domestic violence, victims of natural disaster, the medically needy, the working poor, transitioning from public assistance to work, living in transitional shelters and military families can finally get the transportation they need.
