It is discouraging to the Kidney Foundation of Utah & Idaho to note how many organizations accept car donations in Utah when they ARE NOT EVEN IN Utah or Idaho. Donating online is so easy now days, that many people don’t differentiate who they are giving their car to. Charity Navigator is America’s premier independent charity evaluator. They evaluate over 5,300 of America’s largest charities. On their site, we found an article to help car donors determine where they should be giving their car donations to: http://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=content.view&cpid=158 — when considering who to give your car to, these are great guidelines. Ask if that charity is located in your state! Ask what they do with their money. Make sure the charity is a 501 (c)(3) and understand the work that charity does in your community. Thank you for considering the Kidney Kars donation program!
Thank you for the generous scholarship you awarded me for fall semester 2008. The scholarship has helped tremendously. I’m not sure I could have gone to school this year without it. I’m loving my ‘poor student lifestyle’ at the Unviersity of Utah, and really could not be more thankful that I’m here, able to get an education in spite of all that I’ve been through with my kidneys. I can not adequently express my gratitude for the support the National Kidney Foundation of Utah and Idaho has given me–not just regarding my educational endeavors, but throughout the many years I was sick and waiting for a transplant. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me get my life back.
