Charity choice. We give where our hearts live. Alzheimer’s Disease is one of our donors’ heart-works. Seeing high sale outcomes on donated cars, trucks, vans, SUVs, and motorcycles is a hope-full relief!
Alzheimer’s Disease and the Alzheimer’s Society
“More than 600,000 Canadians are living with dementia today, a number projected to double in less than 10 years. The impact doesn’t stop there, because 1 in 5 Canadians have experience caring for someone with dementia.” The Alzheimer’s Society
Alzheimer’s Disease affects us all. We are working together, across the country, to see breakthroughs in research and care for our loved ones.
The Alzheimer Society of Calgary notes,
As our population ages and (Canadians) are living longer, it’s become increasingly important to have a basic understanding of dementia, how to maintain the health of your brain and reduce your risk for Alzheimer’s disease or related dementias later in life. Currently, the lifetime risk of developing dementia is 1 in 4 for women and 1 in 6 for men.

Since the turn of the calendar in 2016, Donate a Car Canada has worked alongside hundreds of car, truck, van, suv, and motorcycle donors whose heart-cause is Alzheimer’s Disease.
In our early days, a Cadillac DTS drew a donation of $14,195.00 for the Alzheimer Society in Toronto! Today, it’s not unusual for us to see returns of anywhere from $300.00 – to thousands of donation dollars.

Scrap cars. Running vehicles. We take them all! The tow is free, and the society will always issue a tax receipt. Whenever possible, our supporting agents across Canada re-sell donated vehicles. The goal? To achieve the highest dollar donation outcome for your charity possible. A win for the charity. And a win for tax time!
Your unused/unwanted vehicle makes an impact on illness like Alzheimer’s Disease. For our part, we are at-the-ready with exceptional donor care. The donation process takes just a few minutes of your time. In fact, in the same amount time it’s taken to read this little post, you can likely have your car’s information out to us! We take care of every detail. The charity will never pay for this care. If Alzheimer’s Disease is your heart-cause, caring for you is ours.
