The CarMax Foundation

The CarMax Foundation¬†enriches the communities where associates live and work. Together with¬†CarMax, Inc., the Foundation has donated more than $60 million since 2003. Funding programs are made available through a portion of CarMax, Inc.'s pre-tax profits. CarMax, the nation's largest retailer of used cars, revolutionized the automotive retail industry by driving integrity, honesty and transparency in every interaction. CarMax continues to innovate and is currently rolling out an omni-channel experience, providing customers the option to complete transactions entirely from home, in store, or in a seamless combination of both. CarMax has more than 200 stores nationwide, and during the latest fiscal year sold nearly 750,000 used cars and 450,000 wholesale vehicles at its in-store auctions. With more than 25,000 associates, CarMax is proud to have been recognized for 15 consecutive years as one of the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For®.

A national partnership with KABOOM!, supports The Foundation's commitment to furthering the cause of children's healthy living. By the end of 2021, we will have created 190 playspaces, including playgrounds, multi-sport courts, Imagination Playground and Rigamajig, and reaching over 170,000 kids.
