The automotive aftermarket truly takes care of its own. I witnessed this firsthand just a few weeks ago.
The Automotive Aftermarket Charitable Foundation (AACF) was founded in 1959 to assist automotive aftermarket members and their families who encounter tough times. It can be a catastrophic illness or a life-changing accident. The AACF is for people in our industry who have exhausted all other available resources in maintaining a reasonable existence.
Recently, I learned of just such a person, someone who works in the aftermarket who is very ill and really needed some help. So I got in touch with the good people at the Automotive Aftermarket Charitable Foundation. They quickly got to work and assessed this person’s need, and he and his family received financial assistance that helps lighten the load enough so this person can focus on getting better. This was direct aid, and personally, I was floored by how quickly it all came together. I can’t thank the Automotive Aftermarket Charitable Foundation enough, and I know his family can’t either.
The Automotive Aftermarket Charitable Foundation is staffed by experienced industry executives who donate their time. But they need your help, because we’re all stronger when we work together. The AACF depends on the generous assistance of companies and individuals within our industry to provide the financial support to fund the foundation. Together, AACF can assist those within our industry who desperately need help, whenever it happens. The AACF is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, so all donations are fully tax-deductible.
