Porsche donates 911,000 euros to charity after Le Mans efforts

The three Porsche 963s fielded by Porsche Penske Motorsport at last week’s 24 Hours of Le Mans, round four of FIA WEC, has helped to raise 911,000 euros for charity.

The team turned a total of 833 laps at the 24 Hours of Le Mans and for each lap of the 13.626-kilometre circuit, Porsche donated 750 euros to support seriously ill children as part of its “Racing for Charity” initiative.

This added up to 624,750 euros during the endurance classic in France. Porsche has subsequently topped up the donated amount to 911,000 euros.     

This year, Porsche once again gifts the entire donation sum to three charitable initiatives. The registered associations Kinderherzen retten (Save Children’s Hearts) and Interplast Germany will each receive 350,000 euros from the funds raised. The Ferry Porsche Foundation will be given 211,000 euros towards further initiatives to support sick children and their families.

Porsche is committed to many non-profit initiatives and concentrates on sustainable projects in the five core areas of sport, culture, environment, and social issues as well as education and science. In 2023, Porsche contributed to more than 150 sponsorship projects around the world.
