How to Become aParticipating Charity

Last year, Americans donating cars to charity combined to donate approximately half a million cars to non-profits. The One Car One Difference® program is a national public awareness program to drive the number of vehicle donations higher by encouraging even more participation by the public.

With so many car donation platforms to support, the One Car One Difference campaign makes vehicle donation easy. It's ready for your fundraising organization to join today. The sale of even a single car can help you make a big difference to your charitable organization and its mission.

We'll handle the entire vehicle donation process for you, whether it's a moped, a tractor-trailer or anything in between. Get on board today!

This field, which CRI helped pioneer and develop, has been recognized throughout the world as offering great hope for the ultimate prevention and treatment of human cancer. For more than five decades, the Institute has been a sustaining force in cancer and immunology research.

The Institute supports scientists and clinicians at leading universities and research centers worldwide. All such funding decisions are made by its Scientific Advisory Council composed of 65 leading immunologists, including 3 Nobel laureates and 30 members of the National Academy of Sciences.

CRI Chief Executive and Director of Scientific Affairs Jill O'Donnell-Tormey says her organization strives to keep overhead expenses to a minimum. "Donors want as much of their money to go to cancer research as possible; that's why they choose to give to CRI. They can look at ratings from watchdog organizations like the American Institute of Philanthropy, see that CRI consistently ranks at the top of the scorecard, and feel secure knowing their gift is going to have the most impact."
