The AMOA Coin-Op Cares Education & Charitable Foundation is a not-for-profit (Section 501c3) that exists to:
- Support industry continuing education initiatives, such as the AMOA Management Development Program at the University of Notre Dame and the annual Road Scholar program;
- Make contributions to organizations providing disaster relief;
- Raise funds and award educational scholarships, such as the Wayne E. Hesch Memorial Scholarship Program;
- Provide financial resources to other charitable organizations that fit within the Foundation’s stated purposes.
While the Foundation is primarily recognized for its ongoing efforts in directing the Hesch Scholarship program, its mission is broader in scope, with a long legacy of providing assistance to charitable groups that help individuals and communities in need.
