Representing the giving nature of the Independent Car Dealers

Used Car Dealers of Colorado Charity Fund (UCDDF) was founded by the Colorado Independent Automobile Dealers Association (CIADA) in 2014 to assist Colorado communities by sharing the tremendous giving spirit of the Used Car Automotive Industry.

The CIADA Charity Fund exists to represent the goodwill of Independent Used Car Dealers to help all Colorado communities with aid, scholarships and support in order to make a positive difference with families of Colorado.

The Used Car Dealers of Colorado Charity Fund in its relatively short existence has already provided much needed assistance to both individuals and other charities located throughout Colorado. This broad range of help includes donations for transportation, medical supplies, wheelchairs, scholarships plus assisting very special outreach programs that aid the community in health care, housing, child abuse, domestic violence victims, service animals and helped provide more than 4,000 meals to our neighbors.

The CIADA Charity Fund is “Helping Change Lives” in Colorado!


If you, or someone you know needs some extra help, please let us know!  We have several options for helping out. Please download and fill out the application for assistance below and return it to us.  We will get back to you as soon as possible!
