UAF Announces New, Unique Donor Program

Sept. 2, 2021

Individuals can “pour it forward” for the future of the automotive aftermarket with this latest announcement. 

Sept. 2, 2021—The University of the Aftermarket Foundation (UAF) has introduced a unique new recurring donor program, the UAF Coffee Club, according to a press release.

For the cost of a cup of coffee each month, individuals can “pour it forward” for the future of the automotive aftermarket. Funds raised will help provide scholarships and educational opportunities for future industry professionals. 

The program allows for donations as little as $5 per month, also referred to as the “americano” level. There are also cappuccino, latte and frappuccino levels of support. All those who donate by the start of the Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) on Nov. 2 will be recognized as founding members of the Coffee Club.

There will also be a special event during AAPEX to thank UAF Coffee Club members. 

“The premise behind the UAF Coffee Club is to offer individuals an affordable and meaningful way to give back to our industry,” Mike Buzzard, AAP, UAF trustee and chairman of the UAF Coffee Club sub-committee, said in a statement. “By donating as little as $5 per month, every member of the aftermarket can make a profound difference in the lives of students pursuing aftermarket careers.”
