Car Heaven Program

Support the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation by donating your old vehicle through the Car Heaven Recycling Program. Car Heaven is an initiative of Automotive Recyclers of Canada that enables people to get rid of their older, high-polluting car and donate the proceeds from their vehicle to the Alberta Children's Hospital Foundation. And your vehicle is always towed away free! For more information, please visit carheaven.ca/alberta.

 

Donate A Car Canada

Donate A Car Canada accepts vehicle donations for Alberta Children's Hospital Foundation. They provide free towing in many areas across Canada, or you can drop off your vehicle to maximize your donation. When you donate your car, truck, RV, boat, motorcycle or other vehicle to the Alberta Children's Hospital Foundation through Donate a Car Canada, it will either be recycled or sold at auction depending on its condition, age and location. Donate A Car Canada will look after everything to make your donation easy for you to support Alberta Children's Hospital Foundation. The Alberta Children's Hospital Foundation will send you a tax receipt after your car donation is complete!
