The purpose of the MRCA Foundation is to raise awareness and improve the industry by supporting educational programming, industry research, and industry-related academic scholarships.
Managed by a full Board of Directors, the MRCA Foundation, Inc., was founded with an initial grant from MRCA and operates solely on voluntary contributions. Without ongoing funding, the Foundation has limited resources to support its mission.
In 2012, the Foundation Board established a pledge program allowing member companies and individuals the opportunity to support the Foundation over a period of time. Donors are acknowledged on the MRCA website, in Midwest Roofer magazine, and in press releases. To donate, just fill out the Foundation Pledge Form online or call 800-497-6722. You can also renew your membership at the Platinum or Gold level and a percentage of your dues will be donated to the Foundation!
Thanks to everyone who supported the Foundation Auction at the 2016 Conference in Columbus, Ohio! The event raised nearly $45,000 for the Foundation and everyone had a wonderful time doing it!
Please make plans to join the Foundation Board for their Sixth Annual Foundation Auction at the Marriott St. Louis Grand on October 17th. The auction will be held during the 68th Annual MRCA Conference Welcome Reception and Industry Night. All proceeds from the auction will go towards the funding of educational programs, industry research, and academic scholarships.
An online auction booklet will feature all of the available items that have been donated and this year’s auction will also feature online bidding, so even if you can’t be there, you can still participate! For more information or to donate an item for the auction, please contact Megan Miller at: email@example.com or call 800-497-6722.
The Foundation Board graciously thanks all of the donors for their support and generosity.
