Donations and Support

The Carmax Associate Disaster Relief Fund was created to help employees who are facing financial hardship immediately after a natural disaster or an unforeseen personal hardship. The Fund relies primarily on individual donations from employees and support from Carmax to fund this program. Every contribution helps and when combined with the donations of others can provide a tax-free grant (USA) to help a fellow employee in need when they are facing the unexpected.
