At CARS, our mission is to provide nonprofit organizations with the most efficient, highest performing fundraising platform in the industry.  We offer a no hassle turn-key program, along with innovative marketing solutions that engage your donors and generate revenue.  CARS appreciated the importance of deepening your relationships with your donors, because it results in a greater impact on your mission.  Our turn-key program and CARS Automated Response System have been purposely designed for the shifting definition of donor engagement.  By utilizing today’s innovative technology we have ‘paved’ the path for nonprofit organizations and their supporters to build more meaningful relationships.

CARS (Charitable Adult Rides & Services) is a 501©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 2,500 nonprofits with the vision of expanding our fundraising efforts so that we can continue to provide additional revenue to these amazing nonprofit organizations across the United States.  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.

Additionally, CARS runs “On the Go”, a program dedicated to providing transportation solutions to adults 60 years and older in the San Diego community.  “On the Go” was created after the lack of easy, accessible and affordable transportation options for senior citizens was recognized.  The program offers independence and mobility by providing rides to fun community excursions, religious and cultural events, personal appointments and so much more.

Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal cord injury can result in paralysis of the muscles used for breathing; paralysis and/or loss of feeling in all or some of the trunk, arms, and legs; weakness; numbness; loss of bowel and bladder control; and numerous secondary conditions including respiratory problems, pressure sores, and sometimes fatal spikes in blood pressure. Approximately 12,000 new spinal cord injuries occur in the U.S. each year. A majority of injuries occur from motor vehicle accidents, falls, work-related accidents, sports injuries, and penetrations such as stab or gunshot wounds.
