Penske Automotive Group Donated Over $1 Million to Paralyzed Veterans of America


Paralyzed Veterans of America today announced it received a donation of more than $1 million from Penske Automotive Group, a long-time partner and veteran supporter. We received donations from Penske Automotive Group and Premier Truck Group, along with a matching donation of $500,000.

PVA members, volunteers, and staff across the United States can't thank Penske Automotive Group, Penske Truck Group, their employees, and generous customers enough for their heartfelt support, said Charles Brown, national president of Paralyzed Veterans of America.

"With inflation rates rising and COVID-19's impact still being felt, these funds are vital, greatly appreciated, and continue to enable our organization to provide life-changing programs and services to support our veterans."

In 2015, Penske Automotive Group contributed more than $7 million to PVA. As part of the Penske Automotive Group's 2021 Service Matters campaign, the donation will go directly towards providing quality medical care and treatments to veterans with spinal cord injuries and diseases, like MS, as well as accessible vehicles and houses they need, the jobs they want, and the benefits they deserve.

As we enter our eighth year of partnership, it's the perfect opportunity to support our nation's veterans," said Robert H. Kurnick, Jr., Penske Automotive Group President. Customers and employees alike have been supportive of PVA's important work; we are grateful to them all.
