Founded by AGMA members in 1994, the AGMA Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit organization which supports and strengthens education, training, and research for the gear industry.

MISSION & HISTORY

AGMA Foundation Mission

Recruiting, educating, and keeping the power transmission workforce current with emerging technology.

AGMA Foundation Vision

The AGMA Foundation develops qualified engineering and operator level power transmission employees, and keeps the industry current with emerging technology.

History of the AGMA Foundation

In 1994, AGMA members established the AGMA Foundation to allow corporations and individuals to make tax-deductible contributions that advance the gear industry through research and education projects. Over the past 22 years, the Foundation has raised more than 2.5 million dollars to fulfill its mission.

The 2017 AGMA Foundation Strategic Planning Process aligned the Foundation more closely with AGMA’s goals. Over the next 3 years the Foundation will pursue new initiatives, including an Industry Workforce Recruitment Campaign, and a grant to AGMA for the development of 5 new operator level training courses. In addition, the Foundation will continue its highly successful Scholarship Program

BOARD OF TRUSTEES

A Board of Trustees, consisting of AGMA members, manages the Foundation’s activities and programs on a volunteer basis. Trustees are appointed to three-year terms by the Foundation Board of Trustees. The AGMA Chairman Emeritus serves on the Foundation Board as the liaison between the two Boards. The Foundation has one paid, part-time, staff person.
