The Kentucky Trucking Association has a separate 501(c)(3) organization, The Kentucky Trucking Education Foundation Inc., that has three primary goals.

  1. Sponsor a scholarship to students that want to pursue a career in trucking. This includes CDL training, diesel technician, or other aspects of the industry.
  2. Support any expenses incurred for the Kentucky Road Team while teaching citizens about the “no zone” or other truck safety topics.
  3. Pay for anything to promote the industry’s image, for example, we paid for a billboard on I-65 N that thanked our truckers during National Truck Driver Appreciation Week.
