April 9, 2019—I-CAR made a donation of $225,000 to the Collision Repair Education Foundation.

The contribution was made as part of I-CAR’s 40th Anniversary Volunteer and Instructor Conference held March 1-3 in Orlando, Fla. 

Since 2012, I-CAR has provided financial donations to the foundation totaling more than $1.3 million dollars; I-CAR’s source of funding for these donations is the accrual of a portion of annual industry training proceeds, which is why I-CAR refers to this donation as being “on behalf of the industry.”

The funds assist the foundation in its mission to support collision repair educational programs, schools, and students to create qualified, entry-level employees. Last year, 10 local I-CAR committees raised funds to support student scholarships through the Foundation.
