The National Defense Transportation Association Foundation carries out the association’s charter to conduct and assist programs of transportation education, research and development. A volunteer Board of Trustees supervises the Foundation’s activities.
The Foundation is funded by voluntary donations, which are tax deductible under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Funds held by the Foundation cannot be used to meet operating expenses unrelated to the Foundation.
