Endowment Fund

The Endowment Fund was initially established by the Trucking Industry Defense Association (TIDA) in 2008 and acknowledges dedicated service, excellence and commitment to the defense of the trucking industry.

TIDA's mission is to share knowledge, resources and risk management solutions for motor carries, insurers, claims professionals and attorneys. Endowment grants will be awarded to organizations or individuals that directly or indirectly are aligned with the mission of TIDA. The endowment will be in the form of scholarships or grants; it also can be a recurring annual endowment.
