Giving back: the CarMax Foundation.

We believe it’s important to improve the communities in which our Associates live and work — this is the role of the CarMax Foundation. Through the Foundation’s Grants program, Matching Gifts program and Associate volunteerism, we support high-quality programs in the areas of education, youth leadership, and children’s healthy living.
