The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix Association has many ways that you can donate to our cause – to help individuals in the Pittsburgh region with autism and intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Since 1983 the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix, through the generosity of donors and the success of our event, has donated more than $5 million to the Autism Society of Pittsburgh and Merakey Allegheny Valley School.
If you are interested in donating, below are several ways to make your charitable dollars go even further!

The PVGP Drivers Club was created to recognize individuals who donate a minimum of $250 to the PVGP. It’s a special way in which you can support the PVGP charities. Donate today – help our charities and get some great gear! Details
When you make a donation to the PVGP through our Drivers Club program, we’ll recognize you as a contributor. As a token of our appreciation, we’ll offer you your choice of unique and exclusive PVGP Drivers Club apparel. Simply make a $250 charitable donation and you will receive a PVGP Drivers Club shirt or make a $300 donation and receive a half-zip or a jacket. Wear it proudly and help spread the word about our event. If you want two or more items – each will have to be done as a separate transaction.
Each person’s name will be listed and recognized on the PVGP website and starting in 2019 it will go into the PVGP Race Program. Each year a different race number will appear on the item. For 2018 the number 36 is on the sleeve commemorating the 36th year of our event. Next year will be number 37, etc.
Donate Your Used Car, Truck, RV or Boat
In partnership with Vehicles For Charity, the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix accepts pre-owned vehicles which will be auctioned to raise money for our charities. Fast, free pick-up, friendly service and better than a low trade-in or high repairs. You get a tax benefit while helping those less fortunate.
Vehicles For Charity will take care of picking up your vehicle and taking it to the auction. Please follow this link to fill-out a short on-line form. Call 1 866 628-2277 if you have any questions.

Sport a PVGP License Plate – Vanity Plates Now Available!
Show your pride with your very own PVGP license plate! What could be more appropriate for anyone who reveres the glory days of the automobile – especially all of us who identify with the nation’s premier vintage racing event – than a Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix vanity plate. Replace that old, nondescript standard PA plate with this fully legal PVGP license plate and show your Grand Prix pride! The PVGP license plate is the brainchild of the Grand Prix’s own Scott Rupert, who worked with PennDOT to make this happen.

Both options are available on the form below. Allow 8-10 weeks please. Plate Form – PDF
