Car Donation Charity Spends More on its Operations Than Veterans

Fox 4 in Kansas City recently ran this segment about a 'charity,' called Carshelpingvets.org, that spends the vast majority of what it takes in on running its operations... not on veterans in need. Sadly, just as the leader of this organization points out in the segment, it isn't unusual for a car donation charity to be woefully inefficient. So, before you donate your car, check out our tips to ensure your gift enriches a charity and not the middleman.

As a 501 (c) (3) organization itself, Charity Navigator depends on public support to help donors make informed choices. Please consider investing in the future of Charity Navigator by making a donation today.  Donate now >>
