CIF Names Board of Trustees

March 17, 2005

The Collision Industry Foundation (CIF) has named its Board of Trustees. The Officers are Doug Webb, president; Glen Funk, vice president; Marco Grossi, secretary and Chad Sulkala, treasurer.

Other Trustees are Gene Hamilton, Rick Keister, Tom Moreland, Jeanne Silver, Tom Styker and Chuck Sulkala.

“CIF is a 501(c)3 charitable corporation,” stated Webb. “As such, all contributions made to it are tax deductible.

“It was originally founded to handle the $500,000 in contributions collected to help fund the health center at Camp Mak-A-Dream. It occurred to us that the Foundation had the capability of doing much more.

“Over the past two years the Foundation has contributed almost $10,000 to local causes including children’s hospitals and battered women’s outreach programs. And just this past year,” Webb continued, “we raised over $50,000 to send two of our best and brightest collision repair and refinish students to the WorldSkills competition which will be held later this year in Helsinki, Finland.”

The Collision Industry Foundation is closely aligned with the National Auto Body Council, in that the charitable activities it chooses to undertake are those that improve the image of the Collision Repair Industry.

“Our immediate goals,” concluded Webb, “are to identify specific fund-raising opportunities that will meet our image-improvement objectives, and outline a three-year plan that puts the Foundation on a long-term path to success.”
