3. Donate a Car
Car donation to CAIR-LA is easy! Cars2Charities picks up your vehicle at no charge and processes all DMV papers for you.

Boat donations and even commercial vehicles are also welcome.
4. Matching Gifts
Want to make a greater impact with your donation? Many corporations offer Matching Gifts programs that match your donations one-for-one, or even double, tax deductible contributions made by their employees. Additionally, if you volunteer with us, your company may also offer a volunteer grant program and hence double the impact!
What is the Matching Gifts Program?
These are charitable giving programs established by corporations in which the company matches donations made by employees to eligible nonprofit organizations. When you contribute to a qualified educational, civic, cultural, health or youth organization, your company matches it dollar for dollar-up to a certain amount, depending on the company’s policy. Examples of participating companies include: Microsoft, Cisco, Apple, Verizon, Yahoo!
Is CAIR eligible?
Yes! As a non-profit organization striving to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding, CAIR falls under the category of Educational 501©(3).
How can I apply?
Step 1: Contact your Human Resources Department to confirm that they participate in a matching gift program.
Step 2: Confirm that your employer includes CAIR-LA as an eligible nonprofit in its matching gift program.
Step 3: Request necessary forms from your employer and submit them. Your employer will respond to inform you if and when your donation will be matched. This process may take a few weeks.
