The James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship Fund is an independent organization established and registered as a tax-exempt entity under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The Fund is established solely to provide scholarships to the child or dependent of a member of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, and contributions to the Fund are deductible as charitable contributions to the extent permitted by law.
In 2019, $1.2 million was awarded in $10k and $1k academic scholarships for the children of Teamster members to attend four-year college and universities throughout North America. Additionally, many scholarships to support the costs of vocational/trade school programs were awarded.
