RIR Celebrates the Five Days of Giving

RIR Cares gives back to local charities.

The Youth Life Foundation of Richmond was one of five local charities who benefited from RIR's Five Days of Giving.

Richmond International Raceway completed its Five Days of Giving campaign today with donations totaling $15,000, benefiting Richmond-area nonprofit organizations. The organizations are receiving grants from the track’s charitable arm – Richmond International Raceway Cares.

RIR opened up a grant application to be considered for a donation. Richmond International Raceway Cares is a Donor Advised Fund of The NASCAR Foundation, a 501(c)3. RIR Cares is dedicated to assisting charities, causes and events in the community that focus on – but are not limited to – youth, education and recreation.

This year, five Richmond-based nonprofits are receiving grants from RIR Cares:
• Blue Sky Fund ($2,000) – www.blueskyfund.org 
• Junior Achievement of Central Virginia ($2,000) – www.jatoday.org 
• Richmond Community Tool Bank ($3,000) – www.richmond.toolbank.org 
• Northside Family YMCA ($4,000) – www.ymcarichmond.org/northside  
• Youth Life Foundation of Richmond ($4,000) – www.ylfr.org 

Funds donated to these worthy causes would not be possible without the fans of Richmond International Raceway, who contributed to RIR Cares through events during the 2013 calendar year:

• RIR Cares Track Laps
• Online auctions through The NASCAR Foundation
• Central Virginia Celtic Festival & Highland Games
• Donation from sales of Krispy Kreme doughnuts on race weekends

RIR’s Five Days of Giving comes on the heels of wrapping up a FeedMore/Central Virginia FoodBank drive and Marine Toys for Tots drive.

RIR waves the green flag on its 2014 season April 25 & 26, highlighted by the TOYOTA OWNERS 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race and the ToyotaCare 250 NASCAR Nationwide Series race.
