A Painless Charity Car Wash – Earn $1,000 or more

Overview: Cruz Car Wash encourages local schools and non-profits to raise money through car wash ticket sales. This is an environmentally-friendly and effective way to generate significant funds quickly for current or anticipated needs.


Establishing an Account: Before we begin the program with your school or non-profit, we establish your project as a Cruz Car Wash house account.   That means choosing an adult who will be fiscally responsible and filling out our Charity Sign-Up form. We will then give you a minimum of 100 car wash coupons worth $2,500. They are good for our most popular wash, The Whole Enchilada. At the end of 30 days we will bill your organization for $18/ticket, or $1,500 and your organization keeps the balance:  $1,000. The math is simple and you can extend this to as many coupons as you want to sell. We’ve had elementary school classes earn more than $2,000! Many hands make light work, so it’s most effective when the entire class or organization participates.


Tickets: We print the coupons with your school or organization name featured. The wash tickets have no expiration date.

Sales:  Your school or non-profit will then sell the tickets at a face value of $28 per ticket. This is our normal price, but for every ticket that you sell, you earn $10 for your cause. Everyone can get involved, including students, members of sports teams, parents, co-workers and neighbors. It is important to sell all tickets, because there are no returns.

It’s that simple. If you have questions or would like to start a fundraiser, please contact Cruz Car Wash. Good luck!
