RITA Foundation - Moving Minds
The mission of the Rhode Island Trucking Association Foundation is to enhance the image of the trucking industry, support educational programs and workforce development, and to conduct meaningful research and programs that serve to promote trucking’s important role in the supply chain.
Trucks and professional drivers MOVE everything we eat, drink, wear, watch and drive. Donations directly fund educational scholarships and workforce development to attract more women and younger generations of all backgrounds to a career in transportation.
The Rhode Island Trucking Association Foundation is a 501(c)(3), and its donations are fully tax deductible. We appreciate your consideration of a donation to advance the Foundation’s mission and “Move Minds.”
Call Foundation Board Members Debora Babin Katz or Chris Maxwell at (401) 729-6600 to discuss a donation.
