The Original Charity Cars (Free Charity Cars) is a non-profit charity established in 1996. Their founding mission is to provide refurbished donated vehicles to struggling individuals or qualified entities. Considered the pioneers of the free car-ownership concept, their entrepreneurial organization is totally self-sufficient and succeeds without a penny of government funding. Year after year, their charity leads the nation in awarding free vehicles to deserving candidates across America (over 4000), many times paying for the down-payment for auto insurance, as well as the tag, title and registration fees. Additional auto related assistance provided may include mechanical repairs, body-shop repairs, roadside assistance, warranty purchases, parts purchases, rental cars, or even the down-payment for the purchase of a new or used car.
The Original Charity Cars has enjoyed an avalanche of local and
national publicity, including being featured on Oprah, Montel Williams,
Good Morning America, CBS Morning News, and Two Guys Garage. Articles
about the program have appeared in a host of publications including
People Magazine, Women's World Magazine, Motor Trend, The Non-Profit
Times, and The Chronicle of Philanthropy. Among its many awards, the
organization is honored to be a past winner of the prestigious Walt
Disney World Outstanding Community Service Award.
