Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Education, Secondary & High Schools

Mission: To solicit vehicle donations to help support Texans Can Academies. The proceeds from the sale of the vehicles goes directly to the schools to help provide eye glasses, transportation to and from school, clothing, basic needs and a high school education. We teach kids to read and think. Our motto is we graduate thinkers! For over 30years we have helped thousands of kids thanks to generous donations from people like you. Some of these kids break the cycle by being the first in their immediate and extended families to graduate and without you, none of it would be possible.

Results: Texans Can started in 1985 helping kids in juvenile services with everything from education to job training. We later expanded its services to high school dropouts. In 1995, Texans Can became one of the first 20 Texas charter schools. Today, Texans Can is expanding throughout the country with more than 67% of graduates going on to post-secondary education. So far, more than 30,000 students have changed their lives and the lives of their families though Texans Can. With your help, we can change thousands more.

Target demographics: High school dropouts

Direct beneficiaries per year: 4200 students with 1682 students receiving their high school diploma

The online donation is straight forward and easy to fill out. I received a call from the organization almost immediately after submitting the online form, and the representative (Lilliana) was very helpful with filling out the necessary paperwork. The tow company contacted me within a couple of hours and I was able to get my car picked up the very same day. Very prompt service, bravo!
