The Iowa Motor Carriers Foundation (IMCF) was formed in 1986 to complement the efforts of the Iowa Motor Truck Association. IMTA leaders Vern Simpson, Larry Miller, Bob Molinaro and many others felt that a 501 C 3 should be formed to further complement the work of the association.
After months of pulling the plan together the Iowa Motor Carriers Foundation was formed. The first priority at the time was to set up a scholarship program and in 1989 the first scholarships were awarded. Throughout the next several years, IMTA leaders talked about additional opportunities for the Foundation but none of the ideas were fully developed. Over the years, the scholarship program continued to grow and the Foundation’s main focus centered on fundraising for scholarship dollars.IMCF Board of Directors Shared Visions, One Journey Endow Iowa Tax Credit Program 2012 Building Fund Contributors
