Corporate Sponsorship

Through corporate giving, BMW Manufacturing Co. supports non-profit organizations located in the communities where our associates live and work. Our partners consist of educational institutions, cultural arts organizations, and social or community improvement initiatives. At BMW, corporate social responsibility is central to our obligation as a community partner. Since 1992, BMW Manufacturing Co. has quietly supported educational, cultural and civic programs throughout the Upstate. We support dozens of local and statewide organizations, including our most visible initiative, the annual BMW Charity Pro-Am presented by SYNNEX Corporation. Every partnership is an instrument of change. Each contribution is a reflection of our principles. This is a sample of the various organizations we support and a breakdown of our financial contributions by category. Corporate Giving: Nearly $35 million from 1996 through 2013; Charity Golf: over $10 million through 2014.
