MTA FOUNDATION

MTA Foundation's 2021-22 Vision Campaign!

HELP US REACH OUR $25,000 GOAL!

We are in a race to recruit the best talent to the Minnesota trucking industry. By 2022, Minnesota is expected to fall short by 239,000 workers, based on historic rates of economic growth. This means the available labor pool for all industries is shrinking. 

The Foundation is actively exploring dynamic modern approaches for attracting people to truck driving and diesel tech jobs in Minnesota. Now is the time to donate so the Foundation can immediately execute on our plan once in place.

2022/2023 Scholarship Fund Drive!

DONATIONS

​Last year the MTA disbursed $26,867 in scholarships for truck driving and truck technician students. These scholarships can sometimes mean the difference between a student continuing their training and dropping out due to lack of funds.

The video to the right shows just how much your contributions have helped students at Alexandria Technical and Community College pursue a career in trucking.

To donate specifically to truck driving or diesel technician funds, note in "donor comments" on the pledge form.

Thank you 2021-22 Scholarship Donors!
