About US


In 2008, Advance raised over $2.2 million for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). That’s how we keep the wheels turning for a cure!

Advance Auto Parts collects more than 5 million gallons of used motor oil each year and millions of batteries for recycling from our nationwide network of over 3,400 stores.

Built to be a good neighbor.

There’s a lot more to us than selling parts. We know that being a good business also means being a good, responsible corporate citizen. From the sales floors to the corporate office, our commitment to community is evident.

Across the country, Advance Auto Parts serves as a major sponsor of local schools and community events such as alcohol- and drug-free After Prom Parties, Clean Community Days, and local festivals.  Advance is committed to serving our customers better than anyone else, and we recognize that service doesn’t end when they walk out the door. Advance has been a proud supporter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) since 1994. Since then, the Company has raised more than $35 million to support the search for a cure for Type 1 Juvenile Diabetes. Last year’s campaign raised a record-breaking $3.4 million, making Advance JDRF’s number one corporate partner.  The campaign is now a year-round effort involving Team Members, customers and vendor partners participating in fundraising efforts through sponsorship relationships and events like Monster Jam, sneaker sales, golf tournaments, auctions, and JDRF walks.

While JDRF is an important cause for Advance, it is not the only organization we support. Advance has partnered with United Way for more than 20 years to help fellow citizens succeed and help United Way drive toward a stronger community.
