Reviews for Others First

Role: Professional with expertise in this field
Rating: 5 stars  

Others First truly puts the needs of others first. What is great about this organization is that it takes your unwanted car and turns it into cash for some truly great causes, while at the same time giving you a nice tax deduction. Great causes, great people.

My donated car sold for high amount and $$$ went to help Purple Heart Vets. My sister donated a car to help fight cancer. This group does what their name implies...putting "Other First" Also got my IRS tax deduction quick and car was picked up the next day and i loved their friendly phone people. Would recommend.

My donation was solicited to help American Disabled Veterans. The van I donated was sold for $1800 and I received a 1098-C from Cars Helping Veterans. It appears to me that the solicitation was deceitful.

Unprofessional advertising methods. Uses other car donation companies names in their Google search engine advertising. Examples are they are using Texans Can and Dallas Can which are High Schools under Texans Can Academies. Texans Can Academy is the sole recipient of the proceeds from Cars for Kids and Others First which has a car donation program called Cars to Help Kids and uses Google to help donors search for their company but misleads donors by using Texans Can and Dallas Can names and has no right to and is not affiliated with this organization.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Stop misleading donors by not using companies names that are not affiliated with them.
