Colin Weatherwax has been promoted to Chief Executive Officer of Cars for Kids following a career journey that began as a teen in 2011 when hired to wash the cars going up for auction at the car-donation nonprofit. Since then, Colin has held a variety of positions within the organization known for its tagline “Write Off the Car, Not the Kid ®”, with each position growing in responsibility as he graduated high school, earned an Associate's Degree, a Bachelor’s degree and eventually his Masters. Throughout its history, Cars for Kids has focused its funding on Texas schools that help kids finish high school. As CEO, Colin will lead an initiative to expand the organization’s support on a national level. The first charitable organization under this new model is the San Diego Center for Children which will use the Cars for Kids funding to provide foster care, evidence-based therapeutic, educational, and transition-age services to children and families struggling with different disorders.
