In 1989, members of the SAIA formed the SAIA Education Foundation (SAIAEF), a separate 501c3 non-profit corporation. The purpose of the EF is to raise money through various activities and to use those funds for educational programs that add value to the membership and the scaffold and access industry.

During these 27 years of fund-raising projects, the EF has generated more than $530,000 to fund projects and to fulfill our mission statement.
