The Cars 4 Causes® Story

Cars 4 Causes® originated out of a desire to help fund youth education. Along the road to achieving this one charitable goal, we thought it would be a good idea to allow our donors to direct a portion of their net donation proceeds to the youth oriented charity of their choice, thus sharing the giving process directly with our donors. This proved to be popular idea, so much so that donors submitted requests to share proceeds with all sorts of charitable organizations, schools and religious organizations supporting all sorts of causes that were near and dear to their hearts. We agreed and donors began to refer to Cars 4 Causes® as "The Charity that Gives to Charities."® To date, we've shared net proceeds from over 150,000 vehicle donations with more than 15,000 non-profit organizations throughout the United States that support all sorts of wonderful and essential causes. Proudly, we have become an important part of a wonderful community of charities and the people who make them possible.

We are happy to announce Greyhound Friends for Life’s Sanctuary Sponsor program has been renamed B.E.S.T., the Barbara Eineichner Sighthound Trust program. Barbara was devoted to providing foster care to older and special-needs greyhounds and is the inspiration for this program.

Once they get into the rescue system, most greyhounds find a wonderful “forever” home with new adoptive parents. Others, however, may require special help and sanctuary from Greyhound Friends for Life’s (GFFL) B.E.S.T. program.

GFFL makes a life-time commitment to all greyhounds that come into our organization. GFFL provides care for returned greyhounds as well as those from other situations where our intervention is needed. Unfortunately, some dogs are not adoptable because of advanced age or serious medical problems. Although the long-term foster dogs live in a home environment with their foster parents, expenses are paid by GFFL. We currently have 11 greyhounds in the program with an average annual cost of $500 per dog. Last year alone, GFFL covered over $5000 in expenses for our long-term foster dogs. As the expenses mount year after year, we find that we need additional financial help.

How can you help? Sign up to sponsor a long-term foster greyhound! The B.E.S.T. program is an opportunity for GFFL friends who have room in their hearts, but not in their homes, to make a tremendous difference through sponsorship.

You can complete the form, select a payment plan, and mail the form and your check to the address on the form. For those who would prefer to use GFFL’s PayPal account, complete the sponsor form on-line and submit a PayPal payment.

These donations are tax deductible and go a long way to ensuring that every GFFL greyhound is guaranteed a home – for life.
Foster Homes: Can you provide a foster home for a returned or older Greyhound? Usually these dogs remain in foster care longer than younger dogs arriving from the track. If you have room in your home and your heart to foster, please call Ginny Pock (510) 526-2691. Thank you!
Sponsor an event : Each year, GFFL hosts fund-raising events that individuals and business can sponsor.  Sponsors are acknowledged at the events, on our website, and in the GFFL newsletter.  See a list of our current sponsors!

Sponsor a dog : Can't adopt a (another) greyhound right now? You can still help by sponsoring one of our adoptable hounds.  A sponsorship donation of $20, $40 or any amount you can afford will help a dog while it is waiting for its forever home.  GFFL's adoption fee covers only part of the amount spent on preparing a greyhound for adoption.  Your generous donation will help fill in that gap. When you sponsor a Greyhound, we will include your name with the dog's picture and bio on our "available" dog's page.    

Remember all donations are 100% tax deductible.  On behalf of the hounds, thank you!
