More information coming soon

All funds raised at this year’s Live and Silent Auctions will go directly towards the ABA Foundation Scholarship Program, open now through April 6. All employees of ABA member companies and their children are eligible to apply. For more information on the scholarship program, click here.

Supporting the American Bus Association Foundation is one of the best ways you can invest in your business and our industry. Your support produces research that educates lawmakers, stakeholders and the public on how important our industry is to everyday lives. Your support for ABA has also impacted the families we represent. Since 1997, the American Bus Association has awarded more than $790,000 in financial support to over 240 scholars. This auction is a tangible opportunity to advocate for our industry while investing in the next generation.

In addition, participating in an ABA Foundation Auction is a fantastic, low-cost opportunity to showcase your organization or company in front of thousands of people in the travel and tourism industry while supporting our research and scholarship programs.
