The IACAC Board of Directors has taken the extraordinary step in 2020 of making a direct plea to our members and sponsors for direct contributions to help underwrite the annual Scholarship Fund.

We have raised $2200 from 17 donors.

Sadly, we had to cancel our premier annual event - the summer golf outing - which also serves as the primary fundraising vehicle.

We know that in some parts of the industry, things are really tight. Our airline partners are feeling it and forwarders in some verticals have been especially hard hit. Conversely, we know that for others, 2020 has been an unexpected boon.

Many of these students have had their educations disrupted or derailed - but it doesn't mean that we abdicate our responsibility to identify worthy applicants and help them defray the cost of their education.

It is why this year we're coming to you directly asking that without our usual great assortment of raffle items to donate or bid on that you make a donation to the IACAC Scholarship Fund instead.

Every dollar you donate, less the fees from our online processor, will be earmarked for scholarships. And stay tuned - the 2020 IACAC Scholarship will soon be open for submissions through November 6th.

We thank you in advance for your generosity.
