DONATE A CAR for Literacy!

Knowing where it's going makes towing easier!
It can be hard to let go of a piece of nostalgia, but knowing where it’s going makes towing easier!

We’re happy to announce a new way to show your support for the South Grey Bruce Youth Literacy Council!

We’ve registered with Donate A Car Canada, an organization that makes it easy to turn your car, RV, or other vehicle into a charitable donation. Donate A Car Canada will arrange the pick up of your old beater where available or guide you to one of their drop-off locations. It will then be recycled and sold for scrap, or if deemed road-worthy, it will be sent to auction. The Literacy Council collects the proceeds, and you receive a tax receipt for your generosity.

Find out more about the process by reading the Donate A Car Canada FAQ. If you’re ready to donate your vehicle to the South Grey Bruce Literacy Council, you can get started now!

If you don’t have an old vehicle but still would like to help out, we have other ways you can donate or you can consider volunteering.

December is a Great Time for Giving

Give a meaningful gift this season with a donation or an ongoing pledge in the name of a loved one. With your gift, the SGBYLC will send an acknowledgement on your behalf. Your donation is an investment towards the education of Grey Bruce youth!

Head to our Donation page for more information on how you can give.

December 3rd is Giving Tuesday, a movement to promote awareness for charities across Canada. In association with this event, the Acxsys Corporation (the thoughtful group involved with Interac) will be sponsoring an Online Donation Matching Program. They will match any donation (up to $25 each) made on December 3rd, 2013 via Interac online (available on our Canada Helps page).

All donations are gratefully appreciated. Volunteers are always welcome!
