TCA's Benefactor Program

In 1998, the TCA Scholarship Trustees began laying the groundwork for a stronger Scholarship Fund by launching the TCA Benefactor Program. As the program continues to build on its successes, your support continues to be a vital part of the Scholarship Fund's future.

It is the mission of the TCA Scholarship Fund to provide scholarships for promising men and women who may later have a career in the trucking industry. In this way, we hope to further the education of those students who understand the importance of the trucking industry and the vital role it plays in the lives of all Americans.

The students who apply for our scholarships are employees, children, or grandchildren of employees or independent contractors of trucking companies. We foresee that these students are the future of our industry.

Now you can help a new generation of young men and women enjoy the benefits of an education by including the TCA Scholarship Fund in your financial and estate planning. The Benefactor Program is an ongoing program that will continue throughout the lifetime of the Scholarship Fund. Participation in the Benefactor Program enables the TCA Scholarship Fund to further enhance the trucking industry. General support for the TCA Scholarship Fund through the Benefactor Program is vital to the continuous growth of the TCA Scholarship Fund, thereby allowing the Trustees to award a greater number or amount of scholarships each year.

All Benefactor Program supporters will be recognized in TCA's newsletter, The Truckload Carrier Report, and at the TCA Annual Convention.

The TCA Scholarship Fund extends its appreciation to everyone who becomes a member of the Benefactor Program. Contributions or gifts made to the TCA Scholarship Fund, a Section 501(c)(3) organization under the Internal Revenue Code, are considered charitable contributions for U.S. federal income tax purposes.

Your Benefactor Gift Commitment to the TCA Scholarship Fund can be in the form of memorial or tribute gifts; stocks or securities; or bequests. 

Memorial or Tribute Gifts:

Honor the memory of a loved one or celebrate the accomplishment of a friend or family member by making a memorial or tribute donation to the TCA Scholarship Fund. When you make a memorial or tribute donation, the TCA Scholarship Fund can send an acknowledgement card to the family or the honoree. Don't forget to include the name and address of the appropriate person(s). The amount of the gift always remains confidential.

Stocks or Securities:

Your donation of a gift of stock to the TCA Scholarship Fund can have a positive impact on the future of the TCA Scholarship Fund, and you may save capital gains taxes. Consult your accountant or attorney and then contact TCA to find out how you can transfer these assets to the TCA Scholarship Fund.


You can support the TCA Scholarship Fund through a bequest made in your will or family trust document. You may choose to designate a specific gift or a percentage of your estate, or you may name the TCA Scholarship Fund as a conditional beneficiary. Consult your attorney for the appropriate legal language.
