The Tuttle-Click Automotive Group has done an incredible amount of charitable work in the communities where it does business. Nonprofits, schools, and other charities benefit a great deal around the six Orange County-based dealerships operated by Tuttle-Click. Bob Tuttle and Jim Click, owners and George Saad, the Vice-President, have created a strong culture of volunteerism and philanthropy in the company. Tuttle-Click Automotive has been a huge help to the Boys & Girls Club of Laguna Beach, which is one of the primary recipients of the company's philanthropy. They have supported the Club for many years at the annual Art of Giving Gala, and have helped to double the funds raised each time. Around $500,000 is raised by the Gala each year. Also, Carrie Click has chaired the Gala in the past and currently serves on the Board of Directors at the Club. The Tuttle-Click Mazda dealership also sends employees out to volunteer every year for the Pancake Breakfast fundraiser at the Club's Bluebird Park branch. In 2015 the Club celebrated the enormous contributions of the Clicks by dedicating the snack bar of the new Lang Branch as the Click Café. Additionally, George Saad sits on the Advisory Board for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Capistrano Valley. The leadership at Tuttle-Click Automotive are primary drivers of the philanthropy and volunteer movement at the company, which touches many facets of the nonprofit world. With over 500 employees in Orange County, their philanthropic work is reaching many people who need it. Due to leadership involvement in philanthropy, a culture of volunteerism, and financial support of community institutions and charities, Tuttle-Click Automotive is deserving of recognition at this year's National Philanthropy Day.
