Record $9.4M Donated to Collision School Programs

In 2013, the collision industry nearly doubled the 2012 amount of support it provided to high school and college collision school programs through the Collision Repair Education Foundation with nearly $9.4 million in product and monetary donations.

Ninety percent of this support was in-kind donations, and the collision industry surpassed the $20 million mark in total giving since 2008. Also, working towards being as lean of a charitable organization as possible with a full-time staff of four, 90 cents of every dollar donated went towards supporting the school programs, instructors, and students in 2013.

“The incredible growth in support that the Collision Repair Education Foundation has been able to provide since 2008 is a direct result of the industry’s generosity, and to nearly double the amount donated in 2013 compared to 2012 shows how much our supporters believe in the technical education of industry’s future professionals,” said Clark Plucinski, Collision Repair Education Foundation executive director.
