VADA Education Foundation

Accelerating Education, Safety and the Future of Virginia’s Automotive Industry.

The VADA Charitable Education Foundation supports education, safety, and research focused on motor vehicles in Virginia. In addition, we fund academic and trade scholarships for Virginians with an interest in pursuing automotive careers, such as motor vehicle technicians or dealership leadership roles.

Fueling Dreams. Revving Minds.

Contributions to the Foundation support rising automotive stars and causes that promote motor vehicle education and safety in Virginia, with 100% of all funds going directly to the mission (staff salaries and other operational costs are covered separate of the Foundation). If you are looking for a way to give back and make every dollar count for Virginia's automotive industry and vehicle safety, the VADA Charitable Education Foundation is the best avenue.
