Auto Dealers Caring for Kids Foundation

Who We Are

The Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the Auto Dealers Association of Greater Philadelphia (ADAGP). In other words, both organizations are comprised of the same members but the ADAGP is responsible for all industry-related activities while the Foundation spearheads all philanthropic giving. It is a non-profit organization recognized by the IRS under Code 501(c)(3) and has earned Guidestar’s Silver Seal of Transparency.


The mission of the Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation is to enhance and enrich the lives of children and youth in the communities where our dealer members work and live. We want the public to know that we are small business owners who believe in the power of giving back and that we are More Than Auto Dealers.

History & Giving

Back in 2003, the ADAGP wanted to formalize and strengthen the charitable efforts that it had been conducting for quite some time. We had been supporting Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia but we wanted to do more. And so, the Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation was born!

We are proud to say that since forming our Foundation in 2003, we have truly been able to build stronger relationships in our communities and do more giving. To date, we have distributed $18.2 million to area children’s charities, organizations and initiatives. And, we’re not stopping anytime soon. Some of our most recent highlights include:

All the accomplishments listed above were made possible through the generosity and support of our dealer and associate members along with contributions from the public. If you would like to support the good work we do, please click here.
