Washington – Today, the American Trucking Associations’ Trucking Cares Foundation (TCF) announced that Jim Burg has committed to becoming the 29th member of the TCF Founders Club.
“From his start as an owner-operator to founding his own company, Jim has been an outstanding example of the opportunities that trucking provides to those who work hard and put their customers first,” said TCF Chairman Phil Byrd, president and CEO of Bulldog Hiway Express. “Jim possesses an innovative and generous spirit, which has prompted him to make invaluable contributions to our industry and to give back to the community in countless ways over the past four decades. I commend him for building on his impressive legacy of service by joining the TCF Founders Club.”
The Founders Club is a special class of donors comprised of individuals and corporations committed to a $100,000 contribution over 10 years. Founders Club members will receive special recognition across Trucking Cares Foundation programs for their early and generous commitments to making our mission a reality.
“Because of the support of Jim and all of our Founders Club Members, the Trucking Cares Foundation is able to provide critical support for important causes in the U.S. and around the world,” said John Lynch, president of the Trucking Cares Foundation. “These donations allow us to respond quickly when needs arise, as well as make ongoing contributions to important causes throughout the year.”
The Trucking Cares Foundation is the trucking industry’s charitable arm, focusing on several core areas, including: humanitarian and disaster relief, eradicating human trafficking, leadership development, strengthening the industry’s relationships with law enforcement and military and veterans’ organizations, and safety and research opportunities.
