BMW Car Club of America Foundation
In March 2002, the BMW Car Club of America, an organization of over 75,000 members, formed the non-profit, tax-exempt, charitable BMW CCA Foundation to provide benefits to the motoring public and owners of BMW automobiles. Its charter under Section 501(c)(3) enables the Foundation to establish programs to benefit the public in general, and BMW owners specifically. The vision of the Foundation is to be a significant repository of BMW information and to foster educational programs for the automotive community.
To that end, the Foundation has three initiatives on which it is focused: the Conservation and Preservation Program, which fosters and promotes the art of vehicle preservation and restoration; the Library, Archives, and Museum Program, which is creating a repository for BMW-related historical documents, literature, and paraphernalia; and the Driver Safety School Program, which provides financial aid and management to the Tire Rack Street Survival program.
Michelin has joined the BMW Car Club of America Foundation in supporting the Tire Rack Street Survival teen driving program since 2011, earning the title of Official Pavement Sponsor. The program teaches teens driving skills often overlooked in traditional driver education courses.
Dedicated to the improvement of sustainable mobility, Michelin designs, manufactures, and sells tires for every type of vehicle, including airplanes, automobiles, bicycles, earth movers, farm equipment, heavy-duty trucks, motorcycles, and the space shuttle. The company also publishes travel guides, hotel and restaurant guides, maps, and road atlases. Headquartered in Greenville, South Carolina, Michelin North America operates 19 major manufacturing plants in 16 locations with more than 22,000 employees in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
Sports Car Club of America
As the world’s largest auto club and America’s premier racing organizer, the Sport Car Club of America promotes automotive education and safety programs, preserves the history of racing and rallying in America, and encourages college-level automotive engineering students. To those ends, it has partnered with Street Survival and its commercial sponsor Tire Rack to promote teen safe-driving programs throughout America. The all-volunteer staff puts on Street Survival schools at SCCA events and venues all year long, teaching car-control skills to new drivers and potential members.
