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 31 years we have served over 141,000 students 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. Over 2,200 students graduated in 2017 with the help of our car donation program. With your help, we can change thousands more. Please donate.

This is my second car that I donated to Cars For Kids. The experience and transaction process was professional and easy.
In my case I opted for a donation that would provide me a tax deductible receipt. This was quickly processed as the car was sold at auction.

When the time comes to donate number 3, I will be doing so. I know it really helps these kids to get back in school and the opportunity to stay there.
Great Organization!
