Colorado’s future is the hands of its present-day citizens, and it’s our responsibility to safeguard the environment for future generations. Old vehicles pose a hazard to those who suffer from asthma, or anyone that has respiratory issues. Even people who aren’t prone such ailments can feel worse because of pollutants in the air. It’s an issue that plagues every big city, and one that isn’t going away anytime soon. Car donation is one way to keep Colorado’s air clean and Clear the Air Foundation is here to help.
For many people, small acts of charity seem insignificant. We can assure you that donating your vehicle to be recycled isn’t just a drop in the bucket; it really matters. Allowing an unsound vehicle to continue to operate on the road can have many negative impacts on the communities that make up Colorado, the most obvious being how they pollute at a rate much higher than the rate of more modern vehicles.
Car dealership donations are one of the true signs that people in the automotive industry are paying attention to what’s happening to the environment, and that they are committed to keeping Colorado’s air clean and safe for present and future generations. The majority of the car donations we receive are in fact car dealership donations. Many car dealerships have a policy to donate any vehicle that is worth $1,000 or less. This is the sort of grassroots efforts that yield tangible results. Car dealership donations are the smart way to get rid of problem vehicles.
Taking care of your vehicle at the end of its life is a part of car ownership that no one really likes to talk or think about. Even if a person isn’t emotionally attached to a car, there is still a connection between a car that has rendered them faithful services for years. People often sell their dying vehicles on the internet to recoup some of their initial investment. In many cases, this is hazardous because the vehicles are no longer roadworthy, and prone to polluting Colorado’s air.
Founded 2007, Clear the Air Foundation strives to lessen pollution emitted by old or decrepit vehicles by taking them off Colorado’s roads. Clear the Air Foundation supports charities that are dedicated to helping Colorado’s citizens who suffer from environment-related health issues, such as asthma and other breathing disorders. Incorporated under the laws of the State of Colorado, Clear the Air Foundation is a corporation for charitable purposes 501(c)(3) and not for financial profit. We are honored to serve the citizens and communities of the great state of Colorado!
