As the calendar runs out on 2018, the Mike Molino RV Learning Center is requesting donations to help in its mission of investing in the professional development of RV dealership employees across the country.
“The center's key goal is to provide affordable learning opportunities for front-line personnel throughout the dealership,” RVDA President Phil Ingrassia says. “A donation or pledge enables the center to offer a variety of resources, including webinars, training materials, readiness tests and fixed operations certification.”
The RV Learning Center relies on donors’ financial support to help it carry out its mission. Without the generous contributions of individuals who value education and professionalism, the center can’t continue to meet the training needs of an industry that’s undergoing tremendous change.
Those interested can make an online donation to this tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization by clicking here. The RV Learning Center can also be supported through a planned-giving program, which can provide tax benefits over the lifetime of the pledge. Contributions may be tax deductible as charitable donations.
From college scholarships to programs for young RV executives, the center has information useful to all departments in the dealership. (To learn more about all of its resources, click here.)
