The Trucking Cares Foundation seeks to strengthen the federation by inspiring, mobilizing, and consolidating the individual and collective generosity (time, money, assets and expertise) of this extensive trucking family in support of charitable endeavors that advance the purpose of the Foundation.
The Trucking Cares Foundation will accomplish its mission by working in concert with the ATA federation, including the American Transportation Research Institute, ATA conferences, State Trucking Associations, and their affiliated conferences.
