The Kars4Kids Small Grant Program is a national car donation charity that funds various educational and youth programs dedicated towards helping children succeed in school and in life. Applicants must be a U.S. 501(c)(3) organization with a central focus of doing original work on behalf of America’s children, especially in the areas of youth development, mentorship, and education. Grants typically range from $500-$2,000, depending on such factors as mission alignment and availability of funds.
