Board Service Grants

For CarMax Associates > Board Service Grants

At CarMax, cultivating leadership and investing in the communities where our Associates live and work are two core values of our company. That’s why we created the Board Service Program to support Associates and eligible family members who serve on nonprofit boards such as school PTAs, sports leagues, and more. Governing, advisory, and young professionals boards also qualify.
