Donate your car

Child Parent Institute has partnered with Cars 4 Causes, a national charity car donation program that makes it easy for donors to give their old vehicles to non-profit providers of charitable services. Vehicle donations can provide substantial monetary support for CPI's family and children's services while donors make a convenient tax-deductible contribution. Cars 4 Causes accepts cars, trucks, boats, RVs, and motorcycles, whether running or non-running. And donations can be made conveniently on the Cars 4 Causes website ( or by phoning Cars 4 Causes at 1-800-766-CARE (2273). Donors fill out a simple form on-line or provide general information via phone, mentioning that they wish to donate their vehicle to the California Parenting Institute. Cars 4 Causes then arranges for pick up of the vehicle at no cost to the donor. Once the vehicle is sold and the donation to CPI is made, donors receive a written acknowledgement of their contribution. Cars 4 Causes uses many contributed vehicles in its own Affordable Transportation Program which makes approximately 400-500 cars a month available to needy individuals searching for essential transportation. The vehicles are provided smog-compliant and road ready. The program extends the impact of a donor's CPI vehicle donation. In addition to supporting CPI's vital family and children services, a donor is making a contribution to someone's future. Cars that are not repairable or salvageable are recycled. Donors with vehicles can go directly to the Cars 4 Causes website or phone the Cars 4 Causes 800 number to make an immediate and easy car donation to CPI. For more information about CPI and its many programs and services for children and families, phone 707 585-6108.
