The University of the Aftermarket Foundation has introduced a new corporate support aspect
Bethesda, Md.—The University of the Aftermarket Foundation (UAF) has introduced a new corporate support aspect to its UAF Coffee Club recurring donor program. Called the BARISTA level, the new donor program provides organizations with a pathway to join individual donors in “pouring it forward” to benefit of the automotive aftermarket through education.
“We are excited to offer this unique new program to give aftermarket organizations a chance to ‘expresso’ their support and help provide scholarships and educational opportunities for the next generation of industry professionals,” said Mike Buzzard, AAP, UAF trustee and chairman of the UAF Coffee Club sub-committee.
Organizations that donate a minimum of $3,600 to the UAF that is earmarked for the Coffee Club campaign will be recognized as BARISTA at the UAF Coffee Club event during AAPEX on signage, the UAF website, UAF newsletter and other UAF communications. BARISTA donations apply toward Lifetime Trustee status.
“BARISTA donors will join UAF Coffee Club members at a special networking event at AAPEX which has proven to provide a valuable venue and professional connection springboard for those new to aftermarket careers to interact with industry veterans,” said Buzzard.
To learn more and become a BARISTA, contact UAF Executive Director Jennifer Tio at email@example.com. For more information about the University of the Aftermarket Foundation and its available scholarships, or to make a donation, visit UofA-Foundation.org.
