Charitable Programs


Volunteering, contributions, and service are a much needed solution to our industry’s most-difficult challenge: Roadway and work zone fatalities.


The Foundation has several programs that you can feel good about. Consider becoming a life-long supporter or cause ambassador by joining us in one or more of our fundraising programs.


ATSSA and The Foundation: Working Together To Make Zero Deaths A Reality



Scholarship_RWMGradHatBooks_240pxW The Roadway Worker Memorial Scholarship Program


Every year, everywhere, even the most conscientious roadway professionals face their worst nightmare: having a worker killed or permanently disabled in a work zone accident. The Foundation will help ensure that the academic dreams of roadway worker dependents (children and spouses) will continue.

The new design was unveiled in February 2017. Originally unveiled in April 2002, "The National Work Zone Memorial - Respect and Remembrance: Reflections of Life on the Road" program is a living tribute to people killed in work zones. The Memorial travels to communities cross-country year-round to raise public awareness of the need to respect and stay safe in America's roadway work zones.

The Foundation has joined “Experience Camps” to provide children of roadway workers who were killed in work zones a safe place to meet other children who are coping with similar challenges. Experience Camps are free and The Foundation will cover the round trip travel expenses for the child and their guardian to get to the camp, which means there is no cost to the family.
