Why We're Here
We are bringing to market a technology-driven solution* that will improve the way people support charities with car donations. Vehicle donations produce a quarter of a billion dollars per year, of which only a small amount makes its way to the charities addressing our communities' most pressing needs.
The CarDana mission is to increase money to the charitable sector through vehicle donations by providing total transparency, and a far more efficient process.
CarDana is proud to have recently won a seat in the prestigious University of California Irvine's Wayfinder Incubator program.
CarDana is proud to have been featured in the Automotive Ventures "Companies to Watch" Innovation Report by Steve Greenfield.
