Recently, CAI became eligible to accept vehicle donations by partnering with CARS, a California-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit social enterprise that only supports other nonprofits in their fundraising efforts.

Do you have an old car you no longer drive that’s just taking up space in your garage? Or maybe you have a motorcycle that stopped working years ago that you never got around to fixing. Consider donating it to CAI!

Why donate your vehicle to CAI?

  • Donating is easy and the pick-up is free.
  • Donating skips the costs and hassles associated with selling a car, like paying for advertising and insurance, or for car repairs to keep your car in running condition while you wait for a buyer.
  • Donating avoids the costs associated with keeping a car, such as registration, insurance, car repairs, and more.
  • You can free up space at home and/or stop paying for extra parking.
  • Vehicle donations are tax-deductible, and you could reduce your taxable income when taxes are itemized.
  • There is NO cost to you, the donor.

What types of vehicles are accepted?

All vehicles are considered! CARS strives to accept all types of donated vehicles (running or not) including cars, trucks, trailers, boats, RVs, motorcycles, campers, off-road vehicles, planes, heavy equipment, farm machinery, and most other motorized vehicles.

To find out if CAI can accept your vehicle, please complete the secure vehicle donation form on our cars website:

Fara Homidi and 1 Percent for the Planet

Fara Homidi, a renowned makeup artist and entrepreneur is making her donations to CAI through 1% for the Planet, an organization that advises environmentally conscious businesses on how to make the biggest impact with their financial contributions and links them to nonprofits whose work advances environmental stewardship and combats climate change.

In 2022, CAI was approved to participate in the 1% for the Planet network. While CAI is not a typical environmental nonprofit organization, there is substantial evidence of the enormous role educated women play in a healthier planet.
