Audatex provides $25,000 for school makeover

Aug. 15, 2011

Aug. 15, 2011 – Audatex, a Solera company, is offering a $25,000 matching grant to help provide an Ultimate Collision Education Makeover through the Collision Repair Education Foundation.

The grant will help fulfill a California school’s $50,000 wish list. Audatex will match individual and business tax-deductible donations to the Education Foundation (up to $25,000) and a California secondary or post-secondary school’s collision program will be selected from the applicants of the Foundation’s 2011 Makeover school grant. Funding of Audatex’s California matching grant is part of the $100,000 donation to the Collision Repair Education Foundation in 2010 by Solera and their CEO Tony Aquila, the largest cash donation ever received by the nonprofit organization.

“This is an exciting opportunity for Audatex and the industry to make a real difference in the lives of thousands of students through a school Makeover,” said Rick Tuuri, vice president of Industry Relations for Audatex. “Schools and students are the future of our industry, and Audatex is committed to the future. We look forward to working with our industry partners to make a difference for a worthy school and the students.”

Industry members are asked to respond to this matching grant opportunity by Sept. 30. Send contributions with checks payable to:
