About Us

Our Mission

The mission of The Auto Club Group Foundation is to work on behalf of our members and the communities we serve to create lasting solutions, inspire learning and provide research and funding in the areas of traffic safety, tourism, education and community service.

Our History

In 1902, nine motor clubs across the country joined together to form the American Automobile Association (AAA) to protect the rights and interests of automobile users and promote better highway and traffic safety. Today, The Auto Club Group Foundation continues to support those interests by investing in traffic safety, education, tourism and comprehensive community development. The Auto Club Group Foundation which is a private Foundation, represents 14 states and 2 U.S territories, and is an integral part of AAA's evolution and success.


Since 1994, The Auto Club Group Foundation, formerly known as The Cornhusker Motor Club Foundation, invested significantly in traffic safety programs, educational growth and development, tourism and community service.

How We Work

Our approach to grant funding comes from a very basic principle which is to have an understanding of the goals and objectives of local communities. Our relationships, which have developed from years of community service, allow us to offer support in a more impactful and meaningful way.

The Auto Club Group Foundation, which is a private Foundation, is funded by our parent company, AAA – The Auto Club Group. We award grants to organizations and initiatives that enhance our mission in the areas of Traffic Safety, Tourism, Education and Community Service, throughout our 14 U.S. states, the province of Quebec and two U.S. territories.

Annually, non-profit organizations that align with our mission and priorities are invited to submit a grant application for award consideration.
