The NASCAR Foundation embodies the compassion of the NASCAR Family. The NASCAR Foundation seeks to raise funds and increase volunteerism to support nonprofit charities and charitable causes with an emphasis placed on initiatives that affect the ability of children to live, learn and play. Since 2006, The NASCAR Foundation has committed more than $25 Million dollars to initiatives that inspire children around the country to live, learn and play. Evidence of our impact can be found on the smiles of thousands of children attending summer camp for the first time, receiving care in our Speediatrics hospital units and exploring the behind-the-scenes world of NASCAR during race weekends. It can also be found through the Betty Jane France Humanitarian Award which honors the spirit of volunteerism that drives the NASCAR community.
