The CT Breast Health Initiative (CT BHI) has recently partnered with Car Program, Inc. to offer our supporters an innovative way to help this organization and the environment.

Since 1992, America’s Car Donation Charities Center has provided non-profit organizations with a practical means of raising funds via donated vehicles. Car Program, Inc. operates the most efficiently managed vehicle donation program in the country and provides quick and easy disposition nationwide of most donated vehicles – including cars, trucks, trailers, boats and RVs.

The mission of Car Program, Inc. is to assist charities nationwide by bringing them together with you – the general public – and providing both you and the charitable organization with a viable means in which to benefit from a donated vehicle. Car Program, Inc makes it easy for you the donor to support CT BHI because it handles everything from start to finish.

Many charities depend upon the generosity of individual donations to support their programs and services. Over the last few years, with a great deal of funds going to support natural and man-made disasters, it has been difficult for local organizations to get the funding and help so desperately need. Simply by donating a vehicle – you not only support CT BHI but you also make our community, our country, and our planet a better place to live.
