Your tax-deductible donation is greatly appreciated!
Vehicles for Change believes individuals with talent are abundant – it is opportunity that is limited. We are matching those individuals with impactful opportunities via car ownership and automotive training.
A car can be a vehicle to end the cycle of poverty. For families without transportation, getting to work, dropping kids off at daycare and medical appointments, and even going grocery shopping is a daunting task.
Your donation enables VFC to recondition cars for low-income families in need, while also training ex-offenders, underemployed and unemployed individuals on those same cars, in order to place them in meaningful employment opportunities.
Here’s how your contribution can make a difference:
$25 covers vehicle cleaning
$50 buys a tank of gas
$100 pays for a tune-up
$200 replaces tires
$500 provides brakes, pads and rotors
Thank you all for being part of VFC’s Year-End Giving Campaign: Pathways to Success. Thanks to our dedicated partners and supporters, we have officially reached and surpassed our goal of raising $50,000!
More than 10 million households in predominantly rural counties do not have access to a vehicle. Rural Americans without transportation face barriers such as access to employment, fresh food to serve their families, access to doctor’s appointments and healthcare and most importantly, maintain a connection with their family and friends.
You can still help VFC increase our impact in the community by providing donated cars to deserving families, increasing workforce training opportunities, and opening employment opportunities to formerly incarcerated men and women. With your help, we can raise $50,000 to increase our impact in the community and:
Provide donated cars to worthy families
Increase workforce training opportunities
Open employment opportunities to deserving families and formerly incarcerated men and women.
As a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, all gifts, whether a vehicle or monetary, are tax deductible to the fullest extent by law. Ready to get involved?
