As part of our overarching goal and mission, Kars4Kids is constantly on the lookout for likeminded charities which share our values and are working hard to make a difference in the areas of education and youth development.

How it works

We accept submissions directly from organizations and from individuals on behalf of charities they recommend. If you are representing a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, fill out the form below with your organization’s information. Otherwise, just tell us the name and web address of the organization you’re recommending along with a brief description of their mission.

“The [2015 Atlanta Tourette Syndrome Conference] was great… the kids program focused on advocacy, bullying and social skills… Thank you for being part of the team, we honestly couldn’t do it without you! Thanks for all your support…”

Brad Cohen, Brad Cohen Tourette Foundation

“Through your spirit of philanthropy, we are able to help students achieve their potential, extend our reach and improve our services. It is exciting to partner with Kars 4 Kids to serve the blind, visually impaired, dyslexic, and those with other reading-based learning disabilities.”

Jan McDavitt, Learning Ally

"Thank you for supporting Girls on the Run International with a generous contribution of $5,000 granted by the Kars4Kids Small Grant Program. Your support truly empowers girls across the country, inspiring each and every girl to lead a joyful, healthy, and confident life as she activates her limitless potential…."


"Last March, we were awarded a $500 grant from your organization to further our mission of providing supplies to schools, teachers and students by reusing surplus donated by businesses… we wanted to use this money to celebrate our volunteers, who provide much of the work in running our organization… We presented them this fall with fleece vests to use in our drafty warehouse! They loved having something with our new logo on it. Kars4Kids made this happen. Thank you so much!"

Cary Weatherby, Executive Director, Companies to Classrooms

"Girls on the Run was fortunate to receive one of the Program Partnership Grants from Kars4Kids. This organization is wonderful to work with! After filling out the short grant application online, I was contacted with some follow-up questions and then notified that we had been chosen for the grant. Kars4Kids is an amazing organization that works to benefit kids through their own direct programs but also partners with other small non-profit organizations to ensure that even MORE children are receiving quality opportunities for education and growth!"

Sarah McMenamin, Director, Girls on the Run
