The Puget Sound Car Wash Association's
    
CHARITY CAR WASH PROGRAM

HERE'S HOW IT WORKS:

If you belong to a qualifying organization, you can sell tickets redeemable at environmentally-friendly, commercial car wash facilities throughout the Puget Sound area.
Selling car wash tickets instead of having a parking lot car wash is not only better for the environment, it's better for your organization.

  • You can raise more money because you can sell more than one ticket at a time.

  • This car wash is not weather-dependent.

  • You pay a one-time setup fee of $25.

  • Tickets from the PSCWA are $4 each with a suggested selling price of $8.

  • The tickets are custom imprinted with the charity's name.

  • The PSCWA has sales aids available to help charities sell tickets.

  • Tickets can be purchased in blocks of 50 to 500.


Parking lot charity car washes can be deadly to fish and other aquatic life....... Wastewater from charity car washes contains toxic hydrocarbons and other organic compounds like oil, grease, nutrients, heavy metals and suspended solids. Wastewater flows directly into storm drains that are intended for rainwater, eventually finding its way into our waterways.
Professional car washes remove solids from wash water, and then pipe it to water treatment facilities or other state approved drainage facilities designed to protect the environment. Plus, professional car washes conserve water by using much less per car, and many recycle water.

The Puget Sound Car Wash Association

The Puget Sound Car Wash Association (PSCWA) is a local professional organization of car wash owners and operators that promote high standards and practices in the industry, as well as environmental consciousness. For its efforts in favor of the environment, the PSCWA was awarded King County's Earth Hero award. The Earth Hero proclamation reads,"... the Puget Sound
Car Wash Association is considered one of our region's quiet, unsung heroes for its outstanding contributions to ensuring our air, land, and water is valued and protected for all King County residents."

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do we sell the tickets?
The PSCWA has made available a Charity Car Wash banner to help charities sell the tickets. Many charities set up a table at a local grocery store or bank and sell the tickets in this manner.

How much time will we have to sell the tickets?
Under normal conditions, the charity is given 30 days to sell the tickets. Extended time is available if needed.

Do all car washes accept the tickets?
Tickets are valid at participating PSCWA car washes throughout the Puget Sound area. A list of member washes can be found on the back of each ticket.

Do we have to pay for the tickets in advance?
No. We take a credit card imprint. When your organization is finished selling the tickets, you return $4 for each sold ticket and return the unsold tickets. We then tear up the credit card voucher.
