CATA’s Chicagoland Dealers Care program matches dealer charity grants

March 8, 2019
Dealerships play an extremely vital role within local communities, and the CATA is aware that many of its dealer members already support local charitable organizations. 
To help those contributions go a little bit further — and broadcast that message a little bit wider — the CATA is again accepting applications for its Chicagoland Dealers Care program. 
The CATA began the Chicagoland Dealers Care program in 2008 to build upon the charitable efforts of Chicagoland’s metropolitan dealers who graciously donate to causes year-round. The program matches up to $1,500 per dealership and charitable organization.  
The CATA has been a longtime supporter of local non-profit organizations. Since its inception in 2008, the Chicagoland Dealers Care program has donated more than $100,000 to local charitable organizations supported by new-car dealers. Additionally, since 1992, the association has raised more than $53 million for significant Chicago-area charities during the annual First Look for Charity black-tie event, held the evening before the Chicago Auto Show opens to the public. 
To apply for a contribution from the Chicago Automobile Trade Association, please contact the CATA’s Director of PR and Social Media Jennifer Morand at To learn more about the Chicagoland Dealers Care program, click here.
