$5,000 Goal

Trucking is absolutely essential to Minnesota’s economy.   However, trucking companies struggle with the very real challenge of a driver and technician labor shortage.  Minnesota Trucking Association Foundation seeks to address this critical situation.

Each year, MTAF provides partner community and technical colleges with $10-40,000 in scholarship funds for students in truck driving and diesel technician programs.  However, there is much more work to be done to get people interested in the good-paying careers in Minnesota’s trucking industry.

MTAF is embarking on an ambitious long-term project to create a one-stop website hub of information on Minnesota trucking careers, designed to spark excitement: 

"Drive the Difference: Trucking Careers, Powered by People”  

Paired with a multi-year social media campaign, jobseekers will be driven to the website and motivated to contact trucking educators and employers.  High-school students, mid-career changers, and under-represented populations will be sought out for this ambitious workforce development project.

The website is slated to go live by January 2023.   The social media campaign – including unique video and images of real Minnesota trucking companies, workers, and students – will start immediately thereafter.

Your donation will go both to scholarships for folks already heading into the industry and to support this bold project to build up Minnesota’s trucking workforce!
