Guidelines of Charitable Contribution Request
Thank you for inquiring about a charitable contribution for your organization from Continental Automotive Group (CAG). Please understand that we receive hundreds of requests annually, and although each and every request is valid, we cannot contribute to all of them. Please follow the guidelines below when making your request.
- Requests must be submitted in writing, on event/organization letterhead at least 60 days in advance.
- CAG will only consider contributions to not-for-profit organizations in the Hill Country Region and the Rio Grande Valley of Texas.
- A maximum of one request per calendar year will be fulfilled per organization.
- CAG does not make financial contributions, donations of food items or any charitable donations that only benefit one family or individual.
- Contributions and/or sponsorships are NOT automatically renewed or assumed. Each submission is evaluated on a first time basis and will not be approved based on prior year’s participation.
Requests must be sent in writing (or email) to:
Continental Automotive Group
