AACF Launches Champion Donor Program

The Automotive Aftermarket Charitable Foundation (AACF) has launched an elite donor partner program called the AACF Champion program.  

“AACF Champions are generous, big-hearted aftermarket brands and individuals that have committed to supporting aftermarket families with a donation of $25,000 or more,” said Joel Ayres, executive director. “And, we simply can’t thank them enough.”

“I can't explain how grateful we are for AACF’s quick response to our situation,” says a recent recipient. “You really have no idea how much this means to us.”  

“AACF Champions help us maintain emergency funding,” Ayres continued. “This vital funding helps put the tough times in the rearview mirror for aftermarket employees that face catastrophic illness, injury, accident, or disaster that insurance or savings doesn’t cover.” 

“We are blown away by the generosity of the foundation,” said a recent recipient. “We can't thank them enough for reaching out to us in our time of need.”

Current AACF Champion partners include the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA), Auto Care Association, The Group (Pronto/Federated), AASA/MEMA, Standard Motor Products (SMP) and Don Smith.

"The industry has been good to me for 60 years, and I wanted to give back to help others in need," said Don Smith, PWA Founder and SEMA Hall of Fame Member. "No better way than supporting AACF."
