Corporate Giving: Best Buddies International

Providing friendship, jobs and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities is the mission of Best Buddies International. Since 2007, Audi has been honored to be the exclusive automotive sponsor and official vehicle of the non-profit organization founded by Anthony Kennedy Shriver. Audi has helped Best Buddies raise nearly $25 million at the charity’s primary fundraising events. The Audi Best Buddies Challenges in Massachusetts and California take riders on 100-mile bike races, raising thousands of dollars for the charity. This year, Best Buddies and Audi will introduce a new race in the nation’s capital. “We have had the privilege of employing Buddies at our U.S. headquarters and witnessing firsthand the impact of Best Buddies on the lives of those with intellectual and developmental disabilities,” says Johan de Nysschen, president of Audi of America,. “We are honored to continue to support the organization’s incredible mission.”
