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.
Both groups received $4,000 grants on behalf of Richmond International Raceway Cares in 2013. With this money, the organizations were able to build a new learning center, start a new elementary mentor program, and provide families after-school care at a reduced rate.
Last year RIR Cares generated more than a quarter of a million dollars through donations and volunteer opportunities. And our staff invested nearly 700 volunteer hours to support our community.
We’re dedicated to assisting charities, causes and events in our community, focusing on youth, education and recreation. If you or somebody you know is involved with a local non-profit and would like to apply for a grant, please visit www.rir.com/nascarfoundationgrantapplication. Applications are due by October 31. Five local non-profits will be chosen to receive grants in 2014 and we’ll announce one daily during our Five Days of Giving Campaign, December 15 – 19.
Everyone in our community deserves a fighting chance at a future! Click here to hear more about how RIR Cares is helping out the local community.
