Charity is considered to be one of the pillars of Barrett-Jackson, dating back to the “Fiesta de los Autos Elegantes,” a charity car show put on by Barrett and Jackson before forming the auction company in 1971. During the 2018 Scottsdale Auction, after the sale of 10 charity vehicles, Barrett-Jackson surpassed $100 million in funds raised for charity through to date through the company's renowned platform. Among the highlights from the event were four charity vehicles on “Super Saturday,” January 20, including the $1.4 million sale of the first production 2018 Chevrolet Corvette Carbon 65 Edition (Lot #3007). Former U.S. President George W. Bush, the first former president to join Barrett-Jackson on the auction block, was in attendance for the sale with 100 percent of the hammer price benefiting the George W. Bush Presidential Center Military Service Initiative. The company also kicked off its first yearlong charity initiative - “Driven Hearts” - and raised over $350,000 to benefit the American Heart Association during the auction, including the sale of Carolyn and Craig Jackson's personal 1988 Corvette 35th Anniversary Edition (Lot #3008). Capping off the 10 charity vehicles was a 2017 Ford GT (Lot #3010), the first current model Ford GT available at public auction, which raised $2.55 million with 100 percent of the sale benefiting The Autism Society of North Carolina's IGNITE Program and the Autism Alliance of Michigan. The 10 charity vehicles at the 2018 Scottsdale Auction raised $6.21 million for charity, bringing Barrett-Jackson to just over $102 million total raised for charity throughout the company's history. Driven Hearts
On January 9, 2018 at Barrett-Jackson's 2018 Scottsdale Media Day, the company announced details of its first ever yearlong charity initiative. The Driven Hearts initiative, benefiting the American Heart Association (AHA), kicked off at the 2018 Scottsdale Auction and will help raise money and bring awareness to promote heart health throughout the year. In addition to the sale of Carolyn and Craig Jackson's 1988 Corvette 35th Anniversary Edition, the initiative includes the first state-issued Barrett-Jackson themed license plate through the Arizona Department of Transportation, Motor Vehicle Division (ADOT-MVD). The plates cost $25, with $17 of each sale benefiting AHA. Additional aspects of the Driven Hearts initiative include Barrett-Jackson’s partnership with Hotels for Hope, which enables fans traveling to Barrett-Jackson events to book rooms through Barrett-Jackson.com, with a portion of every actualized hotel room night booked going to the AHA. Barrett-Jackson drivers will also be sporting the “Driven Hearts” logo on their shirts, and auction attendees will notice the acronym “FAST” (Face drooping, Arm weakness, Speech difficulty, Time to call 911) around the Barrett-Jackson event sites, as a way of bringing attention to the warning signs of stroke. Some of the charities that have benefited from Barrett-Jackson's efforts are The ChildHelp Foundation, TGen, The Darrell Gwynn Foundation, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, The National MS Foundation, The Carroll Shelby Children’s Foundation, The Hendrick Marrow Foundation, MLB Charities, The Boy Scouts of America, the EAA Young Eagles, and St. Jude's.
