MADAF’s mission is to provide educational benefits to those wishing career opportunities in the Maryland automobile industry. MADAF will fund such benefits through charity events and memorial opportunities in the name and memory of Maryland automobile industry leaders and pioneers.

Our History

 2010 marked the 100th anniversary of the Maryland Automobile Dealers Association.  It was a year during which we reflected on the events and individuals who have made our Association what it is today.  We hosted our 100th Anniversary celebration in Annapolis, MD in 2010 and during the event, we formally introduced our new charitable Foundation and we also introduced the first member of the Foundation Hall of Fame.

Since our founding in 2010, we raised well over $100,000 for the Foundation, an amount which far, far exceeded our initial expectations.  Foundation funds benefit our educational scholarship program.

Our Scholarship Program
The Foundation began awarding academic scholarships for the 2012-2013 academic year and has continued on the path. 

Currently, any student who will be enrolled in the 2016-2017 academic year at a community college, a four-year university, or a non-degree post-secondary technical training program with the intent to work in a Maryland new car dealership is eligible to apply.  Please download the application packet for further information and to apply for a scholarship.

The Foundation Hall of Fame

Each year MADAF has hosted a gala event with two purposes in mind; we raise funds for our scholarship program and we also honor those whose efforts made the Maryland automobile industry the economic powerhouse that it is today.  We honor them by inducting them into our Foundation Hall of Fame.
