Welcome to the Arizona Transportation Education Foundation

The Arizona Transportation Education Foundation (ATEF) was founded as a 501(c)(3) non-profit to operate exclusively for charitable, educational, research, environmental and/or scientific purposes. ATEF is a subsidiary of the Arizona Trucking Association.

ATEF promotes and advances highway safety and a safe trucking industry through research, education, and promotional projects. ATEF fosters educational opportunities for individuals in the transportation industry in part through the awarding of scholarships; prepares and conducts educational activities and media programs about safety; and helps develop a better understanding of the transportation and trucking industry.

Within the transportation industry, ATEF is one of only a handful of non-profits whose mission is focused on the research and public education necessary to promote a safe, economic, environmentally sound system of moving goods and providing related services. ATEF asks for your support of its research and education projects as well as of scholarships that would help transportation workers or their children continue into higher education. We hope you’ll consider supporting ATEF with your tax-deductible donation!
