GIVING BACK: THE CARMAX FOUNDATION..
We believe it’s important to improve the communities in which our Associates live and work — this is the role of the CarMax Foundation. Through the Foundation’s Grants program, Matching Gifts program and Associate volunteerism, we support high-quality programs in the areas of education, youth leadership, and children’s healthy living. Read about some of the ways in which we’ve made a difference.
CarMax Foundation Matching Gifts Program.
Up to $10,000 a year: That’s how much the Matching Gifts program will match per Associate (including family members) each calendar year in any combination of volunteer hours or donations! The Matching Dollars program doubles the amount Associates donate to eligible non-profits by matching dollar for dollar, up to the annual limit, with a $25 minimum.
Bringing playgrounds to life.
Before the first hole is dug, the wheels have already been turning with the selection of a community in need, soliciting partnerships from local non-profits, and (together with CarMax) carefully selecting a community partner. This is what KaBOOM! is all about; our partnership program designed to improve the lives and play times of kids. Once a playground recipient has been chosen, CarMax Associates and community volunteers plan the playground site, and children who will benefit from the playground are given the chance to draw their playground designs. Their ideas are then incorporated into the final design to create a unique, one-of-a-kind playground.
Community Service Awards.
The CarMax Foundation presents Community Service Awards to Associates for their personal volunteer efforts and leadership in community giving. Winners are honored at the company’s largest recognition event of the year and their chosen non-profit organizations receive a monetary gift on their behalf from The CarMax Foundation.
DISASTER RELIEF BENEFITS.
The CarMax Associate Disaster Relief Fund is a charitable fund established to provide assistance to CarMax Associates who have been directly impacted by a natural disaster (i.e., hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes, and floods), or who have been seriously impacted by an unexpected financial hardship (i.e., death of an immediate family member, health issues resulting in catastrophic medical costs, etc.).
