Established in 1996, The Original 1-800-Charity Cars is a 501(C) (3) non-profit charity with its stated mission “To engage in activities that will uplift humanity”. The organization’s main focus is to provide free donated vehicles to struggling families to assist them in their transition from dependency to self-sufficiency. They are considered the pioneers of the free car-ownership concept. Their entrepreneurial organization is totally self-sufficient and succeeds without a penny of government funding.
Struggling families nationwide apply for a free charity car at the organization’s car distribution website. Their website was designed to make the process of choosing who receives a free vehicle as fair as possible by providing a forum where individuals can engage the public and pro-actively pursue their dream of car-ownership. FCC members invest “sweat equity” by voting for others and promoting the charity. The website also provides the charity with the ability to quickly identify qualified recipients in communities nationwide and to match each donated vehicle with each prospective applicant’s specific need. Surprisingly, the unique website has organically morphed into an ever expanding, caring online community offering compassion and hope to struggling Americans.
