New charities join our program each month. As a result, we have over 800 to choose from. Your vehicle donation dollars will go to the organization that matters to you.
In the beginning
Before Donate a Car Canada was launched, there was only one vehicle donation program available in Canada. Kidney Car was doing the valuable work of drawing dollars into the Kidney Foundation through car donation.
This is an important cause to any who have loved ones with Kidney disease of any kind. The charity is doing its work well. It led our founders to consider: could vehicle donation be a means of support for those who suffer from other illness? Moreover, what if we imagined beyond illness and into other forms of marginalization?
When I joined DACC in 2012 we had just over 80 charities on board. And now? Just over a decade later, we have charities seeking us out and asking to join the program. Combined with our own diligence in keeping invitation to join alive, this means hundreds of active charities are benefiting.
December’s new charities
Consequently, even in our quietest season, new charities sign on to receive the monetary gifts that come from your car donation.
For example, in December, five new organizations were added to our offering:
|Campbell River & District Association for Community Living|
|Aplastic Anemia & Myelodysplasia Association of Canada|
|Lennox & Addington County General Hospital Foundation|
|New Hope Senior Citizen’s Centre|
Choice as unique as you
As you can see from the cross section of new charities added last month, the choice of charity is broad. Perhaps you’ll choose by region of the country. Or, your decision can be made by personal experience of celebration or suffering. A choice may be based on interests and curiosity. Our participating charities are varied and each attend to a unique aspect of our Canadian experience.
We welcome your calls, queries, and submissions, so if you have a vehicle that is ready for donation, reach out. Our staff cover long hours to ensure that you receive donor support well into the evening, and on weekends. Our charities don’t need to do anything at all! Their only responsibility, once signed on with the program, is to issue tax receipts in a timely manner. This, too, benefits you as the donor.
Ready to make your charity choice? Consider one of our newly signed organizations, or select from our 800+ long-term participants. We look forward to hearing from you!
