Donate Your Car Today

Careasy.com has made it easy to donate your unwanted car to a great cause – New Canaan Nature Center. The gifting of used cars to “charities” has become a favorite way for Americans to dispose of unwanted vehicles. And why not? You can avoid the headache of selling or junking the car, help a charitable cause and lower your tax burden all at the same time. The New Canaan Nature Center is grateful for your car donation.

Matching Gift Program

Does your company or your partner’s company have a matching gift program? Corporate matching gifts provide a wonderful opportunity to double, sometimes even triple, your contribution to the Nature Center.
