CARS (Charitable Adult Rides & Services), in collaboration with KQED’s Lab, would like to invite you to a special gathering of public media organizations, nonprofits and experts to explore the impact that autonomous vehicles and other disruptions in transportation are likely to have on vehicle donations in the coming years.

Why you should attend
In short, this is part of a larger effort by CARS to help prepare your organization for long-term sustainability.
Vehicle donations continue to represent a growing fundraising revenue stream for nonprofit organizations. 2017 was the most successful year for CARS to date, with more than $30 million raised for our nonprofit partners. Disruptions are coming to large cities across the US in the not too distant future. We see the potential for significant opportunities to develop new revenue streams to support your mission.

Who should attend
CARS is inviting a small number of partners to participate so that we can tackle the design-thinking challenge efficiently.
Due to limited venue space at KQED, we ask that each organization send one participant. There are some 25 spaces available, with a smaller number of “observer” seats, which will be filled on a first-come basis.
Invitations are not limited to senior leadership. Senior leaders as well as up and coming leaders are encouraged to attend. Being knowledgable about your vehicle donation program is preferred but is not a requirement. This would also be a great opportunity to send a creative thinker who may not a fundraiser but is still enthusiastic about your mission and has a long-term future in the organization.
