Donate to the Foundation

Thank you for considering a donation to the New Car Dealers Foundation to support grants and scholarships enabling continuation of car careers.

Your support goes a long way in helping us provide grants ranging in value from $500 to $5,000. These grants are provided as tuition credit or go towards the purchase of new tools. Grant funding is made to the post-secondary school with restricted use for tuition, or to our approved tool supplier, Snap-On.

The automotive sector is a rapidly changing, highly technological industry offering lucrative careers close to home. The Foundation is playing a lead role in promoting these career opportunities for young people.

Donations can be made by cheque, payable to: New Car Dealers Foundation of BC. For donations by e-transfer, please email Shakira Maqbool or call 604-214-9964.

Donate to Auction for Athletes

The supporters of the New Car Dealers Foundation and Special Olympics BC Auction have had a huge impact on lives and communities throughout our province. You have helped thousands of athletes with intellectual disabilities experience life-changing empowerment, friendship, and health benefits through sport. You are incredible champions of those who are too often left behind and forgotten. We recognise and appreciate all you have done.

Today, the Auction for Athletes matters more than ever.

Special Olympics BC volunteers, athletes, and supporters around the province are currently working hard to reopen their in-person programs, with strong SOBC safety protocols in place. But we’re only a quarter of the way back to our usual capacity to change lives.

The pandemic has had a long-lasting, far-reaching impact on athletes with intellectual disabilities, who were already far too familiar with the pain of isolation, and on Special Olympics BC. More than ever, we need your support to rebuild all of our year-round, in-person sport programs that create empowering connections, open hearts and minds to inclusion, and break down barriers.

Your donation to the 2024 Auction for Athletes will help reunite friends on the playing fields as soon as safely possible.

Donate to the Vehicle Auction

Dealers, do you have a used-vehicle sitting on your lot? Perhaps one that just isn’t selling? A car today strengthens your industry tomorrow!
