General Information

Q: What Money Goes To Charity?

A: Minus applicable credit card fees all money from registrations (car show/reserved parking), raffle ticket sales and direct donations go directly to the Atlanta Children’s Shelter. No money is taken from these areas to fund show operations.

Most sponsors donate raffle items and promotional support in lieu of cash. We run a very lien organization to maximize the giving power of the event. Even the space and location are donated.

Money spent with vendors (not raffles), food trucks and the brewery are not donated.

Q: What Is The Charity?

A: The Charity Is Atlanta Children’s Shelter. Their mission is to to break the cycle of poverty for families facing homelessness by building pathways to long-term self-sufficiency, and providing quality early childhood education.

Atlanta Children’s Shelter is a Atlanta based 501(c)3. Atlanta Children’s Shelter will be on site during the event.

Q: Is ShiftAtlanta A Charity/Beneficiary?

A: ShiftAtlanta is not a charity and does not directly benefit financially from the event, including sponsor payments. This is our opportunity to share a community we are passionate about. ShiftAtlanta volunteers for the event and pays some of the operating costs out of pocket.

Q: What Else Will There Be Besides A Car Show?
