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.
