Connecting with our communities

What drives Crutchfield and its employees? It's the service we provide to others, whether it's through a great customer experience or through our involvement in the communities we call home.

Crutchfield people touch the lives of others every day, through volunteer involvement and charitable giving. Our people in Charlottesville, Harrisonburg and Norton, Virginia are proud to help a large number of diverse non-profit organizations every year. Our focus areas include education, disease research and prevention, community services, and the arts. If you would like to request a donation, please refer to our donation guidelines at the bottom of this page.

Some of the leadership and board positions include the UVA Board of Visitors, UVA Health Services Foundation Board, Charlottesville/Albemarle Airport Authority Board, American Heart Association Heart Gala Steering Committee, Charlottesville Area School Business Alliance, United Way - Thomas Jefferson Area, Toy Lift, and local fire departments, among many others.

Charitable Giving

The Arts

Crutchfield is passionate about bringing art and entertainment to life for our customers. We support community theaters, concerts, music festivals, museums, and public radio to help enrich the lives and experiences of our community.


Crutchfield believes that quality education leads to positive choices, which is one of the founding philosophies that led to our success. Our contributions to local schools, universities, and school/business alliances help students make better choices and become productive members of society.

Disease Research and Prevention

Bill Crutchfield's innovative corporate wellness initiative, "Live Longer, Live Better," encourages and rewards employees to learn about and minimize health risks. Bill furthers his commitment to wellness by serving on the University of Virginia Medical Center Operating Board. We extend Bill's efforts to our hometown communities and the nation through contributions to local organizations and hospitals that research and treat diseases of the heart, lungs, and kidneys, Alzheimer's, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, arthritis, and birth defects.
