Founded in 2019, Jersey Shore Car Shows Foundation is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization built on the idea of using automotive related events to pay it forward and give back to our community and local charities. We work closely with individuals and businesses within our community to raise funds and awareness for many unique and important causes.
In addition to helping others, we also maintain our own John K Mills Memorial Scholarship Fund which is awarded to a graduating high school senior who wishes to pursue a career in the automotive industry. A benevolence fund is also maintained to assist individuals or families in time of crisis, regardless of ethnicity, gender, or age.
We are here when our community needs us!
