By SEMA News Editors

The Automotive Aftermarket Charitable Foundation (AACF) has announced a new initiative to support its 65th anniversary in 2024.

Since its establishment in 1959, AACF has been at the forefront of providing vital assistance to individuals and families facing unimaginable hardships. AACF has been there when industry members need it most, from natural disasters to catastrophic medical conditions and life-altering accidents.

To mark this significant occasion, AACF has announced the launch of its 65th anniversary fundraiser. The goal? To rally 1,000 generous donors to contribute just $65 each. With your valued support, AACF can continue its mission of making a positive impact in the lives of those in our industry who need it most.

Here are some exciting ways your company can get involved and be a part of this incredible celebration:

  • Corporate donations: Showcase your commitment to corporate social responsibility by making a corporate donation to the AACF fundraiser. Your contribution will directly support the efforts in providing crucial assistance to individuals and families in need.
  • Employee engagement: Encourage your employees to join in the festivities by participating in employee campaigns. Whether it's through matching gift programs or fundraising events, involving your team will not only strengthen employee morale, but also foster a sense of community and purpose within your organization. Some companies are having contests between departments to see who can get the most $65 donations. Winner gets a pizza party--just one idea.
  • Social media challenges: Create social media challenges or campaigns that encourage employees to spread awareness about our anniversary fundraiser. Utilize these hashtags to amplify our message and reach a wider audience. #AACF65 #65YearsofSupport #AftermarketCharity.
