Support the Charitable Automobile Red-Tape Simplification (CARS) Act

Ask you lawmaker to support the CARS act to help MADD raise critical funding to save lives.

TAKE ACTION NOW »

A new bill that can help MADD raise crucial funding to fulfill our mission was recently introduced, and we need your help to get it passed.

MADD’s vehicle donation program helps raise critical funds to eliminate drunk driving, but past efforts by Congress that were intended to enact strong safeguards to stem fraud and abuse have unintentionally discouraged potential donors. 

According to the IRS, the number of cars donated the first year the new rules took effect dropped by 67 percent. Moreover, the corresponding value of those vehicle donations went down by 77 percent, meaning that donors stopped donating higher value cars that charities derive the greatest revenue. 

The Charitable Automobile Red-Tape Simplification (CARS) Act, bipartisan legislation authored by Representatives Todd Young and Linda Sanchez, was just introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives and would reform IRS rules to give potential donors a fair market value for donating their vehicle to MADD, or any charity that accepts vehicle donations.

Please write your Representative TODAY and ask them to support this important legislation.
