In addition to its donation, Haig Partners has launched a matching campaign and will match all monetary donations up to an additional $10,000.
"As we move into 2021 after a challenging but rewarding year, the team at Haig Partners wanted to give back in a way that benefits both our friends and those seeking a career in auto retail," said Alan Haig, president of Haig Partners. "Our commitment to the industry is focused on helping dealerships grow and maximize their value. This in large part requires developing the next generation of professionals in all areas of dealership operations."
NADA Foundation was established in 1975 and is recognized as the auto retail philanthropic organization promoting programs and support including workforce development, providing emergency relief to dealership employees, and supporting military veterans.
In 2019, the foundation launched the Workforce Initiative, focused initially on synchronizing industry efforts related to recruiting service technicians. In 2020, it expanded the Workforce Initiative to promote all careers throughout dealership operations.
"We are excited to announce that we have contributed $10,000 to the NADA Foundation Workforce Initiative. In addition, we will match all monetary donations to the NADA Foundation up to $10,000," said Haig. "We encourage our friends to also support the growth of our industry with a donation to the NADA Foundation Workforce Initiative."
"Recruiting and retaining a world class dealership workforce is an incredible benefit to local communities everywhere and is the highest priority of the NADA Foundation," said NADA Foundation Chair Annette Sykora. "We are grateful to Haig Partners for their contribution and hope dealership groups will take them up on their matching commitment."
