Each year, RIR Cares provides support to non-profit organizations and charitable causes to help better the Greater Richmond Metropolitan Area and the surrounding communities. We contribute through monetary donations, in-kind gifts, fundraisers and countless hours of volunteering time.
Along with helping these organizations monetarily, the RIR staff accumulated more than 600 volunteer hours in 2014, participating in programs such as Meals on Wheels, Drive for Life Blood Drive, YMCA Bright Beginnings, Read Across America, Bowl for the Green for Junior Achievement, monthly Henrico County Neighborhood Cleanup, and many, many more.
Thanks to the success of fundraising events such as Track Laps and the Turn Left Golf Classic, RIR Cares raised $26,994 in 2014.
We’re dedicated to assisting charities, causes and events in our community, focusing on youth, education and recreation. Richmond International Raceway Cares is a Donor Advised Fund of The NASCAR Foundation, a 501(c)3 charitable entity, that donates racing-related items and offers financial support to assist community outreach programs and other nonprofit charities.
After a selection process of applications, seven organizations were chosen to receive one of four $2,500 grants or one of three $5,000 grants. Check out the videos below of the seven grant recipients of 2014.
