We preserve and promote positive contributions to our communities through supporting charitable work locally and globally.
—from CKE Mission Statement

“We believe in being a good neighbor on every level, whether it’s locally, nationally, or globally. The projects we undertake are diverse, from outreach projects near our corporate office, to aiding in the effort to end hunger in developing nations. Supporting local nonprofits holds a special place in our company culture. Local nonprofits are vital to our communities, and I challenge my peers to do all they can to help nonprofits in their communities. When we contribute human and financial capital locally, we help in a tangible, bureaucracy-free, substantive, and immediate way.”

— Mark Lanwehr, Car Keys Express Founder and CEO




Car Keys Express and its team members are proud supporters of Freedom From Hunger. This organization brings innovative and sustainable self-help solutions to the fight against chronic hunger and poverty. Our support gives families the resources they need to build futures of health, hope, and dignity.



Car Keys Express partners nationally with the US-based Freedom Service Dogs of America, whose mission is to enhance the lives of people with disabilities by adopting rescue dogs from shelters and training them to become service dogs. Clients include children, veterans, active duty military, and adults with disabilities, including autism, traumatic brain injury, cerebral palsy, spinal cord injuries, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, and post-traumatic stress disorder.



Car Keys Express actively seeks out opportunities to help our neighbors near our corporate headquarters in Louisville, KY. For neighbors struggling with the physical and financial burdens of home ownership, we’ve created the Car Key Express Home Improvement Project. We engage community leaders to identify local residents in need of assistance with property upkeep, hazard mitigation, and beautification. Car Keys Express also has a close partnership with Family Scholar House. This local nonprofit is dedicated to ending the cycle of poverty by empowering families to succeed in education and achieve life-long self-sufficiency. As part of this mission, Family Scholar House is committed to saving, building, and changing the lives of those affected by domestic violence by offering a variety of intervention and prevention programs.

The Car Keys Express team actively gives back to the communities we serve through generous employee payroll deductions and participation in ongoing volunteer events.
