Make an impact in your community with your car donation!
Helping nonprofits raise money
Your donation will directly fund the mission and cause of a local charity! We partner with local nonprofits to help them raise money through the sale of donated cars.
The money from your sold vehicle will benefit nonprofit causes like rehabilitation for injured animals, family services, and free medical and dental services for uninsured patients (to name a few). Nonprofits rely on the generosity of donors and supporters like you to keep providing their services to the community.
Through our network of nonprofits, we are able to provide much-needed services to San Luis Obispo County.
When you refer a vehicle to us or enlist us in selling your donated vehicle, 50% of the net proceeds are given to our nonprofit partners and the other 50% goes to our service dog program, New Life K9s.
We pick up the vehicle, inspect it, fix it, sell it, and handle all the paperwork. If you are interested in joining our network of community partners, please fill out our partner application.
Below is a list of local agencies we are proud to partner with to help raise funds for our community.
Mission Cars and New Life K9s are both a part of the Son Care Foundation nonprofit. Mission Cars started as a way to help fund New Life K9s' mission of saving lives through the healing power of the human-canine bond by providing free service dogs to veterans and first responders with PTSD.
We soon realized other nonprofits could benefit from accepting donated cars so we decided to reach out to our local nonprofits so we could help them sell their donated cars!
