Collision Centers of America Donate $18,000 to Collision Repair Education Foundation

Collision Centers of America has joined the Collision Repair Education Foundation’s Industry Leadership Circle donor designation through their recent $18,000 donation. This donation supports the Education Foundation’s Collision Repair Education Campaign fund, which allows the organization to support secondary and post-secondary collision students through their annual student scholarships, tool/equipment grants and the Ultimate Collision Education Makeover $50,000 school grant.

“Increasing demands on KPIs and SOPs require a high level of education at all levels of the collision repair industry," says David Mulder, president and founder of Collision Centers of America. “That is why industry professionals must support organizations that provide education to the collision industry. We are protecting our future by ensuring technicians and management staff have every available opportunity to learn and grow.”

Collision Repair Education Foundation Executive Director Scott Kruger commented, “Thanks to Collision Centers of America for supporting the Collision Repair Education Foundation and joining our efforts in supporting collision school programs and their students. Collision Centers of America’s contribution is an investment into the entire industry as this enhances the Collision Repair Education Foundation’s ability to offer support to career and technical schools and colleges and the students attending these schools. By increasing educational opportunities for these students, who are tomorrow’s industry professionals, the future will be brighter for all segments.”

Kruger added, “The Industry Leadership Circle donor recognition designation highlights the extraordinary commitment of industry organizations and individuals to investing in the future of the industry. We invite other industry organizations to join Collision Centers of America and our other donors at this level in helping to fuel the future of the industry’s future and show these students that their education is highly valued.”
