ABA Foundation Raises $145,000+ at Marketplace 2016

The generosity of 3,500 delegates and strong support from corporate sponsors helped the ABA Foundation raise more than $145,000 during Marketplace 2016. These funds will help power the ABA Foundation for 2016 and enable us to focus on our core mission of providing critical research and scholarships to the motorcoach, travel, and tour industry.

The ABA Foundation does not have a dedicated funding source and relies exclusively on charitable contributions from companies and individuals for its entire budget.
