Today is Giving Tuesday, and automotive aftermarket charitable organizations are presenting the opportunity for aftermarket professionals to come together and create positive change in the lives of individuals within our industry and the communities we serve.
The Automotive Aftermarket Charitable Foundation (AACF) is celebrating Giving Tuesday by providing three ways for aftermarket professionals to contribute.
- The AACF is encouraging donations to help the organization make a tangible impact on the lives of those in need.
- AACF is encouraging participants to share information about its Giving Tuesday campaign on their social media channels, email signature or with friends and family. On social media, use the hashtags: #AutomotiveAftermarket #GivingTuesday #GiveBack #Community.
- Third, the AACF is reminding aftermarket professionals that they can host their own mini-fundraiser, virtual event or awareness campaign to maximize the organization’s impact.
The automotive aftermarket has a variety of charitable organizations to support this Giving Tuesday. In addition to AACF, the University of the Aftermarket Foundation (UAF) is encouraging aftermarket professionals to join the UAF Coffee Club. According to UAF, for as little as $5 per month, a participant’s recurring donation will help fund scholarships and educational programs for the next generation of industry professionals.
To donate, text “COFFEE” to 53-555. To increase your level of support, text “2LEVELUP” to 53-555.
All contributions are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.
