In 1989, a small group of SAIA members led by Bill Ayers, joined to form the SAIA Education Foundation (SAIAEF). At the core of the founders’ mission was to advance our industry, the SAIA, and to ensure there was access to important training and education programs that otherwise would have been financially impossible.

Over the last 25 years, with the financial support of SAIA members, we have raised over $450,000. These generous donations have funded training videos, software, best practice materials, grant funding, and scholarships.

The SAIAEF is here to support you, the members of our Association, the committees, teams,and individuals working diligently to improve our industry and ensure safety training and education is accessible and remains a continued focus.

Thank you to all of you who have donated to the SAIAEF over the years.


To advance the scaffold and access industry and to support the mission of the Scaffold & Access Industry Association by providing funds for safety training and education.
