Frequently Asked Questions

Why was the SAIA Education Foundation founded?

In 1989, a small group of SAIA members led by Bill Ayers joined to form the SAIA Education Foundation (SAIAEF). Funds within the association budget were limited and there was a need for advanced training materials. The first project supported was the Suspended Training Videos and the SAIA EF was formed as a 501c3 so that members could support meaningful projects like this with tax deductible donations.

What is the mission of the SAIA Education Foundation?

The Mission of the SAIAEF is to advance the scaffold and access industry and support the mission of the SAIA by providing funds for safety training and education.

Are donations to the SAIA Education Foundation tax exempt?
