Dear NAFA Colleague,

I am pleased to introduce you to the “new”
NAFA Foundation! For those unfamiliar, the NAFA Foundation is NAFA’s “sister” organization formed more than 40 years ago to develop fleet educational resources and conduct fleet industry research.
 
Late last year, the NAFA Foundation was reorganized to better align itself with NAFA’s mission and enable it to provide more timely resources for the industry. 
 
A few months ago, the NAFA Foundation commissioned a “definition paper” that will offer guidance on how fleet and procurement teams can form a productive partnership that fosters better fleet performance.  This paper will be available in May. 
 
More recently, we teamed up with international mobility expert Lukas Neckermann to develop a series of deliverables on the subject of fleet and mobility.  Over the next few months, we will develop an in-depth white paper that will include immediate steps for fleet managers to take to embrace mobility options.  We will present a webinar showcasing highlights of the white paper in early Fall, then follow with an in-person workshop on the subject next Spring.
 
In order to accomplish the results we know are attainable, we need support for our programs.  I write to you today seeking your financial support of not only the procurement and mobility projects already in the works, but for future programs as well.  We have a full list of potential projects waiting to get started, but all in need of funding. 
 
Making a donation to the NAFA Foundation is easy, and tax-deductible.  To donate, simply complete the accompanying form and return it to the address shown.  Or, even easier, simply text the word “NAFA” to 855-912-7003 and you will receive instructions on how to make a secure donation. 
 
Our 2018 fundraising goal is $250,000.  We are suggesting you consider a donation of $75, but any amount will appreciated and help us accomplish our goal.
 
Thank you for considering this opportunity to help the NAFA Foundation.
 
Sincerely, 
 
Phillip E. Russo, CAE
Chief Executive Officer
