CARS (Charitable Adult Rides and Services)

CARS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based out of San Diego, California. Founded in 2003 as a means to provide additional funding to the programs and services of Jewish Family Service, CARS soon began accepting vehicle donations to help other nonprofits raise extra revenue. What began as a company of just a few employees accepting around 3 vehicle donations per day, has grown into a well- respected leader in the car donation industry. Today, we are partnered with over 3,500 nonprofits with the vision of expanding our fundraising efforts so that we can continue to provide additional revenue to these amazing nonprofit organizations. CARS' success to date stems from our dedication to exceptional customer service, our ability to maximize each donation, and the extensive marketing content we create and distribute to our partners to help promote their programs.

A Good Cause

This is the car I learned to drive in, and it holds a very special place in my heart and memories. I couldn't bring myself to sell it. Donating it was the best way for me to let the car go knowing that it would go to a good cause. I hope it serves you as well as it served me for the past 8 years.

Help The Environment.

My car needed a simple repair and I was already considering donating the car as a lifestyle change toward using bike and public transport. Seems like the right time to donate the car and help the environment.
