The Foundation has been funded since 2000 by a GM endowment and for more than a decade, it has donated an excess of $315 million. The amount was used to educate parents on the issue of child passenger safety, and on a campaign to ensure that teen drivers are safe, as well as to realize projects to send students to college, promote diversity, and finally help support numerous vital non-profit groups.
