Look in free-ads in local papers, preferably free-papers, for folks who have cars they'll give away (because as ork' points out it'd cost them otherwise).
Drain everything, remove the battery, and be sure to have a scrap-dealer agree to take it off your hands afterwards. Check your location - you'll be leaving some broken-glass and "drips" - don't get prosecuted for polluting your local environment.

One thing to be aware of: Used motor oil is classified as a Hazardous Material. That means just about everything on a car can be considered a HazMat. That means that if you arrange the car bash, you're accepting responsibility for finding and disposing of all the pieces properly. Which may cost you more than the fundraiser takes in.

Understand all your costs before you start.

 Try craigslist.org, the free section, or your local junkyard.  

I saw two dead cars in the past week on the craigslist free section, in my home town.

Also, I'm not sure about free, but if you explained to a junkyard (or someone who removes abandoned vehicles from properties) that you are trying to raise money by having a car bash, they might give you one.  It's worth a shot.

You might try the Mormon Church. Talk to the local Bishop they are acessable. It worked for me one time.
