Invest in the future of your industry! Make a donation to the SC&R Foundation.

The SC&R Foundation is a 501 (C)3 organization that is solely funded by your donations and fundraising. We accept donations to the grants/scholarship program, research and general fund.

The Foundation is restricted to spending 10% of its assets annually, so donations earmarked for grants or scholarships are typically dispersed over several years.

Since 1982, the SC&R Foundation has invested more than $350,000 in research and education and more than $480,000 in grants and scholarships to individuals pursuing a career in the industry or looking to advance their skills.

In 2017, the Foundation joined SC&RA, KHL and NCCCO as a supporter of Lift & Move USA events. Additionally, the Foundation launched a new Partners in Education program that makes over $200,000 in online and in-person training and certification available to members and the public.  A new program for 2018 will allow companies to receive financial assistance with hiring an intern.

Donations can be made in one of the three categories below:

Memorial Scholarships or Grants

The Foundation accepts memorial donations toward scholarships or grants. Once the funds reach $3,000 for scholarships or $1,500 for grants, a named memorial award is presented. Often times, a family may choose to fund a grant or scholarship for several years.

Corporate Named Scholarships or Grants

Since its launch in 2012, the Corporate named program has recognized 6 companies who have contributed toward the program. Depending on the amount contributed, companies are recognized up to 5 years with a named scholarship or grant at the Annual Conference.

Research Underwriting

Some donors choose to ear mark their donations to be used for industry specific research. Each year the SC&R Foundation seeks worthy projects to fund like the Financial Benchmark Study in 2017.

General Donations

As a 501(C)3 organization, all donations are tax deductible. All general donations go toward the ongoing initiatives of the SC&R Foundation including industry specific research, the HirePatriots partnership, education, scholarships and grants.

“The support of the Foundation by both individuals and corporations has been tremendous over the years, enabling the Foundation to expand its work and increase its impact. We are looking to help build on that success and drive the work of the Foundation to new levels,”

Corporate Scholarship Contributor, David Lowry, of Bennett International Transport.
