YOU HAVE THE POWER TO CHANGE A LIFE. " Tank you IDA for giving me this opportunity, and this support to continue my studies, to follow me over as a person with value and knowledge." – Mónica Valeria Garcia If you were present for the IDAExpo Opening Session in Indianapolis, you were no doubt impressed with the moving comments of Valeria Garcia, a recipient of a scholarship from the IDA Scholarship Foundation. Included with her many touching words, she stated how the scholarship provided her the opportunity to broaden her education and had actually changed her life. Since the frst scholarships were awarded in 2001, a total of $946,650 has been awarded to 253 students. These students are all family members of IDA dealer and IDA Industry member companies. Since 2001, those who have contributed to the Foundation have literally changed the lives of 253 individuals! Yes, you do have the power to change a life by making a tax deductible contribution to the IDA Scholarship Foundation. Every dollar helps and is deeply appreciated. Beginning July 2, 2015, the Foundation has introduced a special program – Change a Life. The program will acknowledge signifcant donors starting at the $2,500 giving level by allowing the donor to have a scholarship acknowledged in an individual's or company name. An individual who contributes $2,500 can have this honor for 1 year. A $5,000 donation allows the honor for 3 years, $10,000 5 years, and a $25,000 donation for 15 years. I encourage all members to support the IDA Scholarship Foundation, and for those who can, participate at the Change a Life giving level. – Chuck Colton, Foundation Board Chairman The IDA Scholarship Foundation International Door Association ® Scholarship Foundation
