Community Impact

Human Impact


The Association and its members have a strong commitment to the communities they serve. Many of our area dealerships are local, family-owned passed down from generation to generation. Others are part of large multinational corporations that instinctively understand the importance and benefits of good corporate citizenship.

GNYADA's Annual Charity Golf Outing raises money to support scholarships for students who wish to pursue careers in our industry. The funds are distributed among highly deserving automotive technology candidates, through our Center for Automotive Education and Training. The Golf Outing is a yearly sellout event, bringing together all sectors of the industry, for a day of camaraderie, friendly competition, gourmet dining, and exciting prizes.


The Association regularly takes part in the New York Cares Coat Drive. Over our three years of participation in the campaign, our dealers have donated more than 12,000 coats, making GNYADA responsible for New York Cares’ single largest corporate donation.

In association with the National Automobile Dealers Charitable Foundation, GNYADA also arranges for donations of CPR training mannequins throughout the New York area. Every year, our dealers donate mannequins to area hospitals and fire departments.
