Your Support Since 2016

The Power of Partnership

Thanks to growing partners like CARS, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital® can continue to make progress in our lifesaving mission: Finding cures. Saving children.® Your support means that St. Jude can lead the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

Because of your compassion, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food—because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.


A Year of Impact

Wrapping up your generous vehicle donation program on June 30, 2019, CARS raised an impressive $1,702,876 for the kids of St. Jude. Launched in July 2017, this yearlong promotion enabled donors to select St. Jude a the beneficiary of their vehicle donation, with 80% of the net sales proceeds from each vehicle going to help St. Jude kids in their fight against cancer and other life-threatening diseases. 

Thanks to your commitment, St. Jude received, on average, more than 322 vehicle donations each month, or an astonishing average donation of $141,906 each month.

Because of your generosity to freely share your donor data, we were able to work cross-divisional with Direct Marketing to focus on donor retention. In September and December, 2019, 4,436 names were sent a St. Jude Partner in Hope mailing. We received a 100% response index in September and a 131% response index in December. These responses were deemed exceptionally successful, and CARS has allowed us to expand and retain donors for our overall lifesaving mission: Finding cures. Saving children.®

CARS and Cox Automotive received the Partner Campaign of the Year award during the Volunteer Awards Dinner in July 2019 for their successful tri-partnership.

Finally, we appreciate how you stepped up to donate $2,500 as a local corporate sponsor for the 2019 San Diego St. Jude Walk/Run. You even took to the streets with your own corporate team to support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude.


Thankful for All You Do for the Kids of St. Jude

Because of your powerful partnership, St. Jude can save kids, regardless of their financial situation. And while St. Jude may not be located in your community, our research and discoveries are. We freely share the discoveries we make, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.

Thank you, CARS, for your gifts of giving and compassion, and joining the St. Jude mission. Your generosity is a beacon of hope for St. Jude children and families around the world.
