The Crozat Family Foundation Motto
We want to give cars to people with extenuating circumstances, where something unexpected, unforeseen, and unavoidable has happened. A tragedy or health issue…not a lack of responsibility or ability to run their lives on their own accord.
We offer refurbished cars to those who have hit a pothole in the road of life.
About the Crozat Family Foundation
The Crozat Family Foundation was born from a long-standing tradition of helping those in need of assistance in our community. As G&C Founder, Gene Crozat, has said more than a few hundred times, “it is our responsibility to help our fellow men.” What started as a ‘Car-A-Month Giveaway’ on various local radio stations has grown into a foundation that provides support to the individuals and families we meet through the car giveaway. We hope to help the recipients get back on the road of life, giving a reliable ride and additional support to those who have fallen upon misfortune or endured catastrophic, unforeseen events. We strive to help create success where failure may have seemed inevitable.
If you, or someone you know is in need of a car please fill out the attached form and send it to us. Please understand that we cannot help everyone. We will consider those in need and help the ones that we can and that we believe will move towards a path of success with assistance.
The Car-A-Month program is designed to help those in need with a material benefit that helps them every day. A car helps individuals, families and the community as a whole. G&C is happy to be able to give this fantastic benefit to the community. You can join this effort, make yourself proud, and get a well deserved tax deduction by donating a car in need of minimal repairs to help with this program. Thank you to all the participants, recipients and communities for letting us be a part of the giving process.
It Takes a team.
We’ve got a great one!
The Car-A-Month program has grown by leaps and bounds. What started out as literally a car a month has grown to three or more cars per month in Sonoma County!
This has been made possible by the wonderful team members who have so generously joined us. G&C Auto Body COO, Shawn Crozat, spends many hours arranging donations of vehicles from many insurance companies.
Also, local radio stations donate air time for the giveaways, several of the G&C Auto Body shops have refurbished vehicles for the foundation, and parts and supplies vendors have donated parts and materials for the repairs!
We could not have accomplished giving away over 80 automobiles in three years without the help of our fabulous team! Many thanks to all the participants, recipients, supporters and communities for letting us make a difference in the lives of so many individuals and families!
The Crozat Family Foundation was founded with a very specific idea in mind…to love fellow man. In the picture above you will see two people who have just met and you would never know by looking at them how much love they harbor within their hearts on a day to day basis. The man on the right is a member of our community who volunteers every chance he gets, took care of his ill and dying parents until their final breaths, and who also takes cares of his mentally ill son. The woman on the left heard about his situation, she read his story and about all they ways he loves the people in his community. She heard about his own personal sacrifices that lead him to where he is now. After hearing his story of love and sacrifice for those he held dear she wanted to help him, she wanted him to feel loved. So she gave him a car! With this car he will be able to get back to work, further help his son, and continue with all of his good deeds in Sonoma County. If this story has touched or inspired you please donate today.
