Education, especially literacy, is a central focus of the Pebble Beach Company Foundation. We believe that education is critical for individuals to rise out of poverty. The money raised for and by the Foundation, and in turn distributed to our community partners, helps address this need.Bill Perocchi
CEO of Pebble Beach Company
The Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance brings together our passion for cars with the opportunity to raise money for people in need. With the help of our generous donors and sponsors, as well as many volunteers, the 2018 Concours was able to raise more than $2.1 million for charity.
Since the Concours began in 1950, the amount raised for charity to date totals more than $27 million.
Through our primary charitable partner, the Pebble Beach Company Foundation, proceeds from the Pebble Beach Concours benefit more than 80 of the region’s best youth-focused nonprofit educational programs. In keeping with its focus on education, the Foundation is also working with the Concours to oversee the scholarship programs created to honor Phil Hill and Jules “J.” & Sally Heumann and encourage the next generation of automotive enthusiasts. Several charities also benefit directly from our Concours Charity Drawings as well as grants provided through the Foundation. Additional charities volunteer time and effort in exchange for donations, while other nonprofits benefit from the use of Concours infrastructure, such as tents, to host their own fundraisers.
