Sponsor an APTF Event

The American Public Transportation Foundation appreciates the individuals and organizations who have sponsored events throughout the years. It is through their contributions that we have been ab​​le to hold successful fundraising events where proceeds have directly funded scholarships. Serving as an APTF sponsor allows your organization the opportunity to participate in our Corporate Donor Recognition Program. This initiative recognizes the generosity of corporate donors as well as provides additional incentives as those donations accumulate over time. The Corporate Donor Recognition Program, including the recognition and donation levels, is detailed below.
