Sponsor an APTF Event

The American Public Transportation Foundation appreciates the individuals and organizations who have sponsored events throughout the years. It is through their contributions that we have been ab​​le to hold successful fundraising events where proceeds have directly funded scholarships. Serving as an APTF sponsor allows your organization the opportunity to participate in our Corporate Donor Recognition Program. This initiative recognizes the generosity of corporate donors as well as provides additional incentives as those donations accumulate over time.

Current Campaigns

One of the APTF programs that directly supports the main mission of the foundation is the Named Scholarship Fund. This process allows a donor to establish a fund that provides an annual scholarship to a student studying a career of specific interest to the named scholarship.
