Our car’s raison d’être was to provide transportation for two teenage boys. In her glory years she carried guitars, amps, soccer gear, any number of socks and shoes, camping gear, dates for formals, and the lingering smell of a sour Starbuck’s hot chocolate. We’re delighted to donate her to support NPR, which was always on, no matter what!We recently donated our 2003 Honda Accord (Stella) to New Hampshire Public Radio. She’s the car I had when I met my husband, the car in which we brought our first child home from the hospital, and the car I listened to hundreds of episodes of This American Life in when I was on maternity leave with my second child. She was a great car, and when the time came, we knew we wanted to support our local NPR station to keep great programs on the air. Thank you!
I am so sad to say goodbye to our Toyota Sienna. She holds the chronicles of our family life: from lugging my son, his friends, and all their equipment to hockey games, to transporting various bands and equipment around Brooklyn and Manhattan, and thousands of trips to the beach.Despite my mixed feelings, I’m really glad this car is going to WNYC, as I can’t imagine it having a better afterlife-chasing down stories and listening for intrigue!I’m selling our Saab Turbo. I truly loved it—so powerful so comfortable, and with such incredibly good gas mileage! I feel sad to see it go, but I really don’t need it anymore.I am especially happy that my donation to WSHU can be of some help. I’ve supported them for many years. I love their programming!
goodbye to a car may not seem like a significant event, but it’s saying goodbye to many shared miles and memories. It makes it all the more significant that she now awaits pickup for donation to Maine Public Radio. My electric blue PT Cruiser’s going to bring more public radio programming to all of us!Our car listened as many conversations were had in her seats: the kinds of conversations that silly boys have, or conversations defining relationships, or conversations seeking identity, or conversations that strive to answer the questions of the universe, or conversations that seal friendships and brotherhood. She heard many more things than the parents heard, and she was proud that she could be that car, that she could have her own stories. And now, today, we donate her to WBEZ to carry on the conversations.
Ive been listening to WNYC for several years now. I hear the fundraising drives and never feel like I can make a donation. But, donating my Hyundai, Bert, was perfect for me. Bert drove Grandma Alice to stamp club meetings in Brighton Beach, and drove cross country many times, with dog and cat in the back.My favorite show is On Being, but I listen to the news in the morning as well, and turn it on whenever I’m in the kitchen making meals.I spent seventeen wonderful years with my Honda CR-V. That car got me through tough times—after my mom died, the car helped move all her belongings. It got me through magical times—on an extended Nova Scotia trip. And it got me through sweet times—a concert rain-out turned into a delightful picnic when we improvised by hopping in the back and opening up the hatcAnd now that the time has come to part ways, selling my car just didn’t feel right. I realized that a far more noble and appropriate departure was to support another dependable and wonderful part of my life—NPR.Thank you my dear green Honda and thank you WFCR for providing this fitting farewell for my faithful companion.
My youngest is off to college, and we don’t need 3 cars for our 2-car garage. So, my beloved Saab must go. Why not donate it to Minnesota Public Radio? It’s a rare thing on the radio these days—intelligent conversation.We all want to be as helpful as possible, but there are plenty of stories about charities that either spend more on lavish offices than they do on the people they’re supposed to help, or spring up after a natural disaster only to disappear as soon as the money is collected. How do you learn about these charities and get a more clear picture of their business practices?One of the FTC’s most important pieces of information is to use Charity Navigator to learn more about the organization that wants your money. It’s a good place to start, but not every public radio station is rated because many of these small, local organizations fall under Charity Navigator’s $1 million per year fundraising threshold.
Nevertheless, it still provides good information on the organizations that may be much more familiar to most people who are thinking about donating a car. Digging into the ratings of one of the more familiar car donation charities, the organization gets a two-star rating from Charity Navigator. But that’s only part of the story. They manage a two-star rating because it’s a combination of a four-star rating for “Transparency,” and a one-star rating for “Financials.”Both the FTC and the FBI suggest that donating to charities that you already know and trust is the best way to avoid charity fraud.The Car Talk Vehicle Donation Program was developed — and is still managed by — the people who created the programs you listened to on NPR for the last 40 years. The Car Talk Vehicle Donation program was developed by Tom and Ray Magliozzi, and managed by the producers and staff at Car Talk, whose names you heard and laughed at at the end of every single program. The program was designed to give back to the hundreds of stations that carried Car Talk on a weekly basis.
The money that the Car Talk Vehicle Donation Program generates goes directly to the public radio station of your choice. While some vehicle donation programs struggle to send Charity Watch’s “reasonableness threshold” of 60 percent of the revenues generated to their respective recipients, the Car Talk Vehicle Donation Program pledges to send 70 percent directly to the stations it partners with.This program is a legacy of the public radio show Car Talk. For more than three decades, Tom and Ray Magliozzi (aka Click and Clack, the Tappet Brothers) answered listeners’ questions about cars, and provided laughs, comfort, and trustworthy advice to millions. While Tom passed away in 2014, Ray and the rest of the staff decided to continue this program as a way to give back to the stations that were our friends and partners for decades–and whose programs we listen to every day.
