Giveacar is a Social Enterprise; we are a small business who reinvests any profits straight back into our company. This enables us to continue recycling your old cars whilst raising money for charity. Our business is focused on giving back to those who need it most.
Launched in January 2010, just seven cars were donated in the first month, demand grew steadily. Giveacar now handles up to 500 cars and donates thousands of pounds to over 100 charities on average each month. Giveacar was the first service of its kind in the UK and allows charities to tap into a brand new source of funds. At the same time it gives car owners a simple way to get rid of their unwanted cars properly and put them to good use, raising money for their favourite charities.
Giveacar is a great success with both charities and the general public. To date we have raised over £2,000,000 for more than 2,700 charities and coordinated the collection of over 22,000 vehicles. We remain a truly independent social company, not owned by or tied to any commercial operation.
Giveacar is a not-for-profit business and we manage our costs by taking a nominal service fee from the overall donation proceeds.
