CarMax - We're Helping Our Heroes

The associates at CarMax are passionate about giving back — and are vocal about supporting those who serve our country.
In April 2016, CarMax announced a nationwide commitment to community support and career opportunities for military members and their families. 

BOOSTING HEALTHY MILITARY COMMUNITIES

The CarMax Foundation has joined with KaBOOM!® as its first corporate partner to build playgrounds in military neighborhoods around the country. And, donating play equipment – Rigamajigs and Imagination Playgrounds – to nonprofit groups that serve military families, such as Fisher House.

CarMax associates are also volunteering in communities across the country with veterans through The Mission Continues, a nonprofit group that helps veterans adjust to life at home and find purpose through community impact.

In total, CarMax has committed $1.5 million to support organizations that support military and veteran families.

PROVIDING STRONG CAREER OPTIONS

Eleven percent of all CarMax hires are veterans and military spouses! That’s because veterans have the qualities that are key to success at the company — integrity, teamwork, commitment to putting people first, and always doing the right thing. CarMax shares these qualities —they’re the bedrock of their business. The company has joined with organizations like Hiring Our Heroes to connect veterans with careers at CarMax — from service and sales to positions at their corporate home office.
