About Our Program

When inspiration meets need ...

We are not only about charity funding, but are best known for our wheelchair van assistance program.

It all began in 2006 as an outgrowth of our 'donate a car' fundraiser. Our CEO, having a special needs child himself who enjoyed the use of a wheelchair van, noticed an occasional donation of a handicap van. He thought it was a 'waste' to send such a vehicle to a dealer auction. Typically, that would only bring several hundred to a few thousand dollars in funding, with the van even likely to be used for other purposes.

Why not hold the van and find a local needy family that could enjoy such a gift. Eventually, when we saw that no one was doing this nationwide, the program expanded to fill the need. We have also expanded into Crowdfunding Campaigns to help raise funds to refurbish vehicles and to help individuals with their own appeals, to fund vans for their personal family needs.

Today, our program is unique in its national coverage. We handle donations and process requests for children and adults nationwide. Learn more and see where we are listed as a resource by clicking on the links below.
