The CarMax Foundation to Donate up to $650,000 in Support of #GivingTuesday Campaign

November 30, 2020

Each of CarMax’s 25,000+ associates empowered to direct funds to their favorite nonprofit


RICHMOND, Virginia (November 30, 2020) – Each year, millions of Americans participate in #GivingTuesday – a day of global giving. This year CarMax, the nation’s largest retailer of used cars, and The CarMax Foundation will launch a new initiative to help associates get involved. Tomorrow, The CarMax Foundation will provide all 25,000+ CarMax associates with a $25 credit – or electronic ”Care Card” – to donate to an eligible nonprofit of their choice. With full associate participation in this initiative, the Foundation is poised to donate $650,000 to nonprofit organizations across the United States.  

Serving as an extension of the existing gift matching program, associates will have the ability to log into the CarMax Associate Giving Portal and designate a nonprofit to receive the funds. The CarMax Foundation worked with corporate giving software provider, CyberGrants, to integrate the feature for the first time in conjunction with #GivingTuesday. 

“Our associates are passionate about giving back to their communities,” said Rosey Sanders, President of The CarMax Foundation. “Last year we achieved record volunteer participation rates. While the pandemic has made it difficult to volunteer in person, this initiative will empower every associate to donate financial resources to the cause most important to them this Giving Tuesday and holiday season.” 

The CarMax Foundation is dedicated to supporting the causes our associates care about, contributing almost $9M in Matching Gifts to nearly 3,000 nonprofit organizations to date. Each ”Care Card” will be valid for donation through January 31, 2021.
