Kelley Blue Book Turns Old Horsepower into Funds Supporting Girl Power for Women's History Month
March Vehicle Donation Campaign Supports Girls Inc., Other Nonprofit Organizations

IRVINE, Calif., March 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- To celebrate Women's History Month, Kelley Blue Book teamed up with CARS (Charitable Adult Rides & Services) to launch a campaign helping Girls Inc. and other nonprofits making a difference in the lives of girls and women. From now through the end of March, consumers with a vehicle past its prime can help turn their old horsepower into funds for programs that promote girl power by donating their vehicle to Girls Inc., a nonprofit that inspires girls to be strong, smart, and bold.

Since partnering in 2017, Kelley Blue Book and CARS have raised more than $3.2 million for nonprofits nationwide.

In partnership with CARS, on Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com, consumers can choose to donate almost any type of vehicle to Girls Inc. or other nonprofits, from cars and trucks to boats, RVs and more. CARS strives to accept every vehicle donation regardless of condition and offers free pick-up and towing. Since first partnering in 2017, together Kelley Blue Book and CARS have raised more than $3.2 million for nonprofits nationwide. 

"Vehicle donation is a really easy way to charitably give to an organization," said Jessica Stafford, senior vice president of Autotrader and Kelley Blue Book. "It's a win-win opportunity, especially for people offloading an older vehicle with little value left who may not want to hassle with trying to sell it on their own. Beyond the tax benefits and ease of the process of donating a used vehicle through CARS, people can feel good about giving to worthy nonprofit organizations like Girls Inc. that make a difference in the lives of girls and families in their community and beyond."

Kelley Blue Book's parent company Cox Enterprises recently expanded its longstanding relationship supporting Girls Inc. to include a national partnership, as the nonprofit's mission aligns well with Cox's values to support inclusion, diversity, and promotion of women, as well as Cox's committed focus to STEAM-related causes. Girls Inc. encourages STEM learning through year-round programming, experiences and activities that allow girls to explore, ask questions, persist, and solve problems. By interacting with those pursuing STEM careers, girls come to view these careers as exciting and realistic options for themselves. As of 2020, Cox serves as Girls Inc.'s National Sponsor of STEM and College and Career Readiness.
