CREF Announces COVID-19 School Recovery Fund

In light of the increased challenges that will be faced by schools due to the COVID-19 crisis, the Collision Repair Education Foundation (CREF) has put together a new initiative: the COVID-19 School Recovery Fund.

Sixty-five percent of collision schools surveyed have told CREF that COVID-19 was going to affect their school collision budget the next school year. Forty-five percent of those said their 2019-2020 budget is already being affected. That will directly affect their ability to educate their collision students.

Some of the areas that will be affected include:

  • Capital equipment purchases
  • Consumable purchases
  • Curriculum
  • Tools/equipment
  • Safety equipment

This fund will identify schools that have been impacted by COVID-19 and bring them to the level needed to produce the best entry-level employees. It will also work to connect students at those schools with industry employment in their areas.


Companies and individuals are invited to join CREF to save collision education by making a monthly or one-time donation. Make a one-time/monthly tax-deductible donation online or contact CREF to discuss supporting the future workforce of the collision industry.
