CauseNetwork Foundation, a registered 501(c)(3) charitable foundation that provides free fundraising tools for charities, founded National Car Donation Month to bring awareness to vehicle donations. The foundation enables all US registered charities to be able to benefit from this generous way to give (previously, <1% of charities had a car donation program).
Car donations can be made to any of the 1MM+ charities recognized by the IRS on MyRideMyCause.org. The program sends the net proceeds from the auction of the donated vehicles to the donor’s charity, and the donor receives a receipt for the maximum tax deduction allowed by law.
In 2018, the Registrar at National Day Calendar proclaimed the celebration to be observed annually.
