Giving Back


Circuit of The Americas is proud to be part of the Greater Austin community, and the COTA team is committed to giving back to our neighbors and the wonderful people, places and organizations that make Central Texas a great place to live, work and play.

In 2018, COTA helped more than 100 local non-profits raise money for worthy causes through the donation of race and concert tickets, COTA on-track experiences and official merchandise. If you are seeking a charitable contribution from COTA, please read carefully through our philanthropic priorities and donation procedures for 2019.


Circuit of The Americas receives thousands of requests for support every year, and we annually designate certain nonprofit organizations to be our priority partners for philanthropic support.

Circuit of The Americas' 2019 priority beneficiaries are as follows:

  • Institutions and organizations that focus on meeting the needs of U.S. veterans, military families, and local law enforcement;
  • Groups that support “at risk” youth; and
  • Organizations conducting and supporting medical research, with a focus on diseases affecting the elderly.

If your non-profit organization does not fall into one of the categories above, please know that we may be able to assist you in future years as our giving parameters rotate to additional worthy causes.

Thanks for helping us make Austin and Central Texas a one-of-a-kind community!
