I volunteered running a Saturday night program that is funded by Kars4Kids, it's an amazing program to keep these kids off the streets, playing sports and meeting of with mentors, It's truly amazing to see these children grow up graduating high schools and moving on to collage.

Kars4Kids made it so simple and easy...! Detailed communication throughout the process, wasn't left with any unanswered questions, everything happened right on schedule, provided all documentation for tax deduction, was quick and *no stress*. And knowing the donation goes fully to help children and their education, this is a complete win-win for all. Highly recommended, would absolutely call upon them again in the future. PS - and a catchy jingle!

I am the director of an independent council of Girls on the Run, and we were fortunate to receive one of the Program Partnership Grants from Kars4Kids. This organization is wonderful to work with! After filling out the short grant application online, I was contacted with some follow-up questions and then notified that we had been chosen for the grant. Kars4Kids is an amazing organization that works to benefit kids through their own direct programs but also partners with other small non-profit organizations to ensure that even MORE children are receiving quality opportunities for education and growth!

I filled out the Kars 4 Kids form online and within minutes received a follow up email. They quickly scheduled a pick up time that was convenient for me, and the driver was on time and courteous. I received an email receipt the next day and I'm good to go knowing that my my old minivan is now helping kids! Awesome

I volunteered at a Kars4Kids-sponsored summer camp several years ago and in the years since have been privy to much of the incredible work this organization makes possible. Truly changing countless lives with real dedication.

Kars4Kids' support helped us get disadvantaged youth outside in the Pacific Northwest, kids who may not otherwise have had a chance to hike, camp, or snowshoe in the wilderness. They were easy to work with, very friendly and encouraging!
