Mission

The Rally4aCause Foundation, a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit, was started to connect automotive enthusiasts with like-minded individuals, to create opportunities to give back to various charities, and to share the joy of automotive culture with younger generations. Our goal is that all kinds of automotive events will use the organization as a stepping stone to unite the automotive community with various charities such as the Epilepsy Foundation of America, Shriners Children’s Hospitals and Hear the Cheers, a branch of the Chicago Audiology Society.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our main goal for 2020 was to reach $200K in fundraising, which we have already achieved.
Other goals include increasing brand awareness, improving our web presence through our website and on social media, protecting our intellectual property, and creating additional fundraising events to expand our reach to give back to the community.

We built a significantly improved website to help drive brand awareness
We are increasing our social media presence on Facebook and Instagram
We are working with our grassroots fundraisers with incentives for raising certain amounts of money
We are creating merchandise to assist in building our brand awareness

We have already achieved our main goal of reaching $200K in fundraising for the 2020 year while improving our online presence.
