Read what some of our charities say about Giveacar

Giveacar is a great scheme which has raised over £4,000 for Release. I was initially a little sceptical as to how many people would use it, but we’ve seen that this is a highly effective form of passive fundraising. The company is efficient, and we are pleased and thankful to be associated with them.

Giveacar is a brilliant scheme where everybody wins. My sister gave them a call on a Friday to recycle her very rusty, 20-year-old Skoda. They picked it up the following Wednesday. Done. It didn't cost her a penny and she raised £140.00 for Sambat Trust. From a charity's perspective,we love working with Givecar. The staff are very friendly and efficient. Every time a car is donated to Sambat Trust, we receive a letter with a breakdown of the donation and how we can send a thank you letter to our kind donor. Excellent service and support which is free of charge. So to any charity out there, sign up now because this is an innovative, environmentally friendly and efficient way for you fundraise, and to any generous soul looking to get rid of their old car, please donate it to the Sambat Trust- your old banger can still do some good. And remember, it's FREE!

We've been working with Giveacar since the end of 2010 and we are very pleased to be a part of this fantastic and innovative scheme. Donations through Giveacar have been very generous, which is great as our guide dog service receives no government funding. We're incredibly grateful to our supporters who have used Giveacar, and it's a great company to work with. We hope that the supporters of even more good causes use Giveacar in the future - and tell their friends!

We have been working with Giveacar for the past year, and so far have raised over £1400 for the Macular Disease Society. These donations will help us in our work supporting people with macular conditions, while also helping our members and supporters to get rid of unwanted vehicles. The Giveacar staff are always helpful and the service is quick and efficient – just what we look for in a fundraising scheme.

This is a simple and effective way of attracting a new source of donations as well as reducing the amount of unwanted or unused cars lying around. Our supporters have raised over £5,600 from donating their scrapped cars to CBM UK, which will enable us to continue to transform the lives of more people with disability, their families and communities in the poorest places of the world. This is a great scheme and I would happily recommend to other charities ... Well done Giveacar!

Sightsavers would like to thank Giveacar for raising over £4,400 to support our work preventing avoidable blindness in some of the world’s poorest countries. It costs just £30 for a sight restoring operation, an operation which can transform someone’s life overnight, so just one simple transaction using Giveacar’s innovative fundraising initiative can make a real difference.

Since promoting Giveacar to our supporters we have raised over £3,000 for St Richard’s Hospice. It is a great way of securing extra revenue for the hospice and is an easy and efficient process for the donor. St Richard’s publicises the scheme and Giveacar do the rest…. all we have to do is thank the generous supporter and bank the money. We would recommend Giveacar to any charity looking for alternative ways of raising extra funds.

In just over 16 months St Catherine’s Hospice have raised nearly £2000 with Giveacar. It’s been a great help in raising our green profile and added to our important recycling and ‘green’ portfolio. As a local hospice it’s important we maximise every opportunity to raise funds and Giveacar have given us another string to our bow by giving supporters the opportunity to raise money for us, recycling their vehicles. The service is so quick and simple, we actually recycled one of our own hospice service vehicles raising nearly £100.

Action Medical Research has raised over £1,200 in the last year with Giveacar. It's such a simple idea and even our staff have got involved. Our Communications Manager, Claudine Powell, recycled her car for Action and recommends others do the same. "I searched for a reliable scrap car dealer online. When I found somewhere that sent the profits to charity, I thought that was great. Giveacar’s service was excellent. I filled in my details online and received a phone call an hour later. A local scrap dealer arrived bang on time the next morning and took the car away with no hassle. It made my life easier and raised £100 for Action. I would encourage anyone who has a car to get rid of to think about using this service. You can raise money for a good cause as well as helping the environment.”

The Giveacar team are friendly and helpful and there is total transparency throughout the process. So far Giveacar have helped to raise over £2,000 for Food For Thought Africa and this money has been used to feed 150 school children in one of the poorest parts of Africa for 1 year.

Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust has been working with Giveacar for a while , and has been delighted to raise nearly £4000 through the scheme, helping us to protect, enhance and conserve the precious wildlife in our three counties. We encourage our members and supporters to recycle as much as possible, for example ink cartridges and mobile phones, however to be able to offer car recycling as another option is very novel and unusual! The Giveacar staff are always very helpful and friendly, and we have found the whole process very straightforward. What a fantastic idea, and what a fantastic scheme! Thank you to everyone at Giveacar, and to everyone who has donated a car to our cause so far.

We have been working with Giveacar for three months now and have already raised over £2,000 which will help us continue to support people with dementia and their families. Giveacar is a wonderful and unique way to support Alzheimer’s Society and we recommend this to both our supporters and other charities.

We have been working with Giveacar for the last month and have found it to be a fantastic service. Over the past month we have raised in excess of £1700 and it offers another fantastic source of income under our recycling initiatives. Whenever I drive past abandoned cars I really get annoyed as potentially that is £100 wasted which could have provided 2 hours of specialist care.

Using Giveacar is a great way to help Royal Trinity Hospice, and supports the vital work of our nurses who provide expert end of life care, completely free of charge, for over 1,500 people with terminal and life limiting conditions every year. With your help we can ensure that those we care for receive the care they need at home or at our centre in Clapham with families, friends, and carers. Thank you.

Tom and his team have taken a simple idea and made it work for wider benefit. The good deeds done with the donations from Giveacar must be awesome. It still amazes us that people choose Old Pit Ponies to benefit. We know nothing of the process. We just trust in Tom & his Team that it’s all done “Proper”. We just get an e-mail from Tom with good news in it. It’s the easiest fundraising we do by far. Just a few words in our Newsletters and to our contacts in the Press.

Giveacar is an incredible and innovative idea. We are so pleased to be affiliated with it. In a world where cancer is affecting more and more people, we need wonderful ideas like this one to ensure that people who are living with cancer are getting all the care and support they need. Thank you Giveacar

Here at Youth for Christ we have been astounded at the extent of the fundraising success we have seen through Giveacar - providing this option to our supporters as a way to bless our ministry has been seized upon much more than we ever anticipated. We wholly recommend Giveacar.co.uk, to both our own supporters and also to other charities.

Giveacar is a really simple and unique way for our supporters to donate towards our work. What’s more, people are discovering Toybox through the Giveacar scheme itself! We really enjoy offering this really innovative and environmentally friendly way to fundraise. The scheme was easy to join and the Giveacar team have been really efficient in processing donations.

Thanks very much for helping Thera Trust, a low profile charity, with donations to enable us to help people with a learning disability to live fuller lives. We have received two donations, amounting to the best part of £1,000, in a very short time. It is a great service you offer, easy for the charity and for the donor. Everyone wins.

We have been working with Giveacar for several years and have raised over £18,000 through their fantastic scheme. We would like to say a huge thank you to Giveacar and to everyone who has donated their vehicles in support of us, the money you have donated has helped us to support to children with brain injury across the UK.

Since registering with Giveacar £846.15 has been raised for St Mary’s Hospice. As well as being a great recycling initiative, the Giveacar scheme has paid for 11 family support sessions for close relatives of our patients. We have to raise over £2 million per annum to provide all our services and without supportive schemes like the Giveacar initiative we wouldn’t be able to provide comprehensive supportive and palliative care for adults in South Cumbria. This easy to use scheme has proven to be highly beneficial to St Mary’s and the many people in the community we support. We are very grateful for the fantastic support provided by the team. We would highly recommend Giveacar to other charities looking for innovative fundraising ideas.

We have received a number of donations already through Giveacar and have been very impressed with how well the scheme works. The money that we have received is hugely helpful especially in this tough economic climate. It has afforded us the opportunity to buy additional art equipment for our art group, something that builds self esteem in our service users and helps them change their lives.

The Giveacar scheme has been a great success and we have now been donated at least 10 cars from kind supporters of SHADH. We look forward to a continued working relationship with Giveacar.
