As a non-profit business and a public charity, we understand and embrace our responsibility to steward the gifts of our donors for the greatest possible impact.
We strive to meet all legal and regulatory requirements, and operate within the best practices, in a timely and transparent manner.
All donations to The Piston Foundation are tax deductible to the extent of the law. Our EIN is 85-4373512.
As a new business, a significant portion of our current resources are dedicated to establishing our operational infrastructure and charitable programs.
Our goal, as an organization, is to achieve the financial best practices outlined by Charity Navigator, spending no more than 30% of revenue on program expenses. We will meet this goal in 2024.
Launched in January of 2021, The Piston Foundation is a public charity that funds skilled trade education for students and apprentices who want to pursue careers in automotive craft, vehicle restoration, and service. We are proud to have received a Gold Transparency seal from Guidestar in our first year of operations.
