The end of the year is just a few weeks away but there’s still time to make a TAX DEDUCTIBLE donation to the Equipment Dealers Foundation!
The Equipment Dealers Foundation (EDF) is a 501 (c)(3) and is the charitable arm of the Equipment Dealers Association (EDA). Each year EDF collects donations from dealers and other industry stakeholders to fund its two core initiatives: workforce development and disaster relief.
In 2019 EDF has been hard at work….
- $34,000 in scholarships awarded to students pursuing education in ag, including trade schools, bachelor’s and master’s degrees
- $20,000 in scholarships awarded to teachers to attend ag-specific training programs to bring new curriculum to their students (over 1,000 students impacted!)
- $20,000+ to fund an education and awareness campaign about careers in ag for parents and teachers of middle and high school aged students *we need your help to expand this campaign*
- $105,000 raised for victims of flooding in the Midwest, special thanks to the Iowa-Nebraska Equipment Dealers Assn. for matching their local donations!
We’ve done so much giving lately, and we want to continue to meet and exceed our goals, so we’re calling on dealers, manufacturers and industry stakeholders to help us replenish the Foundation reserves. It’s a perfect time of year to consider a donation and “pay it forward” for the industry. You can donate online at www.equipmentdealer.org/contribute-now/ or complete this pledge card and mail to
