    Friends of the Foundation

    Behind the Ultimate Driving Machine® stand the ultimate drivers.

    They are friends and neighbors, executives and factory workers, fresh-faced college kids and silver-haired CEOs.  One thing unites them: a passion for driving—and for the Ultimate Driving Machine.®  These are the men and women who comprise the BMW Car Club of America—the largest BMW club in the world.

    Together, they established the BMW Car Club of America Foundation, a 501(c) (3) not-for-profit corporation. They gave it a mission: to preserve BMW’s heritage in this country, and to establish programs that give back to others—especially teaching teens to survive their most dangerous years on the road.

    These drivers, these men and women, are the Ultimate Driving Community.

    Introducing the Friends of the Foundation

    Family. Friendship. Community. A sense of pride.

    The BMW Car Club of America has always been about these things.  Now we have a unique opportunity to share our values—and create a legacy that will stand the test of time. It will be built on a firm foundation—the BMW Car Club of America Foundation.

    The vision is clear: to be a living repository of BMW CCA history, BMW information and to benefit the motoring community. Hence three ambitious initiatives: Street Survival® teen driver safety program; The Library, Archive & Museum Program; and The Conservation and Preservation Program.

    Friends of the Foundation recognize those individuals that help the BMW CCA Foundation achieve its vision.  It reflects the essence and energy that motivate our membership, as well as a shared sense of pride in knowing what we can accomplish—together.
