NADA team meeting


NADA Foundation works to ensure a strong workforce of retail auto professionals, from connecting people to on-the-job training to helping dealership families after natural disasters.


A strong dealership network strengthens the economic fabric of America, and that’s good for everyone. Investing in people builds a community where everyone is valued and supported, enabling them to succeed and flourish.

The NADA Foundation Story

Local new-car and -truck dealerships are rooted in every community in America. From big cities to rural areas, America’s more than 16,000 dealerships employ more than 1.1 million people in good-paying jobs in sales, service and management. These are technology jobs with excellent wages, benefits and career paths with real opportunities for advancement, even without a college degree.

Founded in 1975, the NADA Foundation — the retail auto industry’s philanthropic arm — promotes workforce development, provides emergency relief to dealership employees, supports military veterans and more.
