The NASCAR Foundation is dedicated to giving children the power to win through programs that foster learning, growing and giving, while focusing our efforts on STEM education, health & wellness and volunteerism. Since 2006, The NASCAR Foundation has committed nearly $20 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.
