Copart Donates $15,000 to the Collision Repair Education Foundation

For the third consecutive year, Copart has contributed $15,000 to the Collision Repair Education Foundation.

This donation from Copart will support the Education Foundation’s Collision Repair Education Campaign fund, which allows the Foundation to provide its annual student scholarships, school grants, and Ultimate Collision Education Makeover $50,000 school grant to collision programs. These collision school instructors are facing smaller and smaller program budgets and in need of the industry’s support now more than ever. Industry contributions through the Education Foundation directly address the instructor’s needs to provide the best technical education possible to their students, the industry’s future professionals.

Clark Plucinski, Collision Repair Education Foundation Executive Director stated, “On behalf of the organizations Board of Trustees, staff, and the collision school programs across the country that the Education Foundation supports, I would like to thank Copart for their continued support. It will only be through a collaborative effort of industry supporters will we be able to address the industry’s dire need of highly trained, productive, and skilled entry-level workers graduating from high school and post-secondary collision school programs. Copart’s donation assists us in continuing this effort and I would invite other organizations who aren’t currently supporting the Collision Repair Education Foundation to follow Copart’s lead in providing support.”
