Tom Wegge of Palm RV, Fort Myers, Fla., pledged $37,500 to the RV Learning Center to be paid in $7,500 increments over five years. The pledge puts Palm RV into the top donor category of Major Gifts.
That category, is designated for donors making gifts or cumulative pledges greater than $25,000.
Wegge’s pledge and donation kick starts giving for 2016 and puts the Learning Center on track to achieve its fundraising goals and to realize ambitious plans to revamp the Learning Guides for fixed operations professionals.
The 2016 fundraising campaign began during the RV Dealers International Convention/Expo in Las Vegas. The campaign runs through the end of the Learning Center’s fiscal year in June and is aimed at continuing to fund innovative and cost-effective training, education and learning resources for dealership personnel.
“This generous pledge from Tom Wegge is just more evidence of why he is such a valued member of our dealer body and he serves as the director for Region 1 of the Florida RV Trade Association,” RV Learning Center Chairman of the Board Jeff Pastore said.
The RV Learning Center is a tax-exempt organization as described in section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Contributions may be tax deductible as charitable donations.
