During 2014, Autobell® Car Wash’s Charity Car Wash Program helped raise $730,653 for charities, schools, and other nonprofits in North and South Carolina, Virginia, and Georgia. The Charlotte-based company’s program began in 1998 and has assisted nonprofits in raising over $6.97 million to date.

Through the program, Autobell provides 501(c)(3) groups with full-service car wash tickets custom-printed with the organization’s name that are sold by the nonprofit at full price and honored at all Autobell locations. Fundraisers keep 50 percent of the proceeds from all ticket sales.

“We’re happy to offer this simple and effective way for so many worthy nonprofits to reach their fundraising goals," stated Autobell president and CEO Chuck Howard. "There’s no need for organizers to plan and execute a parking lot car wash or other large-scale fundraiser, worry about rain dates, or incur any upfront cost.”
