TEQUESTA, FL — Once a year, The Aftermarket Foundation sends out a letter to members of the aftermarket industry asking for help. While many in the industry are involved in a number of various philanthropic organizations, The Aftermarket Foundation is the only charity devoted specifically to the needs of those who work in the aftermarket.

Known for being one of the industry’s best kept secrets, The Aftermarket Foundation has been offering financial assistance to families and individuals from the aftermarket for 56 years. In that period of time, the foundation has increased its support grants from $10,000 per year to approximately $250,000 per year. They now have a record number of families relying on them for support.

The Aftermarket Foundation supports individuals and families whose principal breadwinners were employed in the aftermarket and fell on hard times either through illness, death, an accident or other family tragedy. Described by Chairman Donald Schlenger as a truly “bare bones charity,” the Foundation’s total expenses to funds raised runs approximately 10 percent. The Foundation is presently helping about 20 families or individuals. While there is not a large turnover with cases, Schlenger said, the foundation has been helping some recipients for as long as 20 years.

In order to continue providing the outstanding amount of financial assistance that they do, The Aftermarket Foundation needs your support. If you would like to support the Aftermarket Foundation, or would like more information call 772-286-5500. The Aftermarket Foundation is a 501 (C) (3) entity, and all contributions are tax deductible.

If passed into law, the SEMA-supported bill would prohibit the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) from finalizing the agency’s proposed federal emissions standards for light- and medium-duty motor vehicles model years ’27 to ’32, which intends for electric vehicles (EVs) to make up 67% of all new vehicles sales by 2032. The CARS Act also prevents future EPA motor-vehicle emissions regulations that would mandate certain technologies or limit the availability of vehicles based on engine type.
