Donating Your Vehicle to Help a Dallas Charity

Donating a car, motor home, motorcycle or boat to a charity organization is not only an act of kindness but it can also help with your taxes. Dallas has many organizations that will accept your vehicle, running or not, but two organizations stand out: Texans Can! and Charity Motors.

Texans Can! Cars for Kids

The proceeds from the sale (or scrap) of your donated vehicle to Texans Can! go directly to help at-risk youth . . . kids who have dropped out from school and are leading a dead-end existence. Texans Can! has twelve facilities in Texas dedicated to providing an alternate education for these kids to get them back ‘on track’ and to helping their families improve their lives.

  • Austin CAN! Academy
  • Dallas CAN! Academy (3 locations)
  • Early Childhood Learning Center
  • Families For Learning
  • Fort Worth CAN! Academy (2 locations)
  • Houston CAN! Academy (2 locations)
  • San Antonio CAN! High School
  • Texans CAN! At Carrollton/Farmers Branch

Texans Can! started out as a school to help juvenile offenders continue their education. Their program worked so well that they were able to branch out to help high-school dropouts and other kids in trouble. Texans Can! claims to have helped more than 30,000 students with more than half of them going on to college or trade schools after receiving their high school equivalency.
