Foundation

Invest in the future of manufacturing.

The National Tooling and Machining Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit designed to fund manufacturing education—building skills while increasing awareness. All contributions to the foundation are fully tax-deductible.

Begun some 20 years ago by NTMA and run independently ever since, the foundation has helped create the National Institute of Metalworking Skills (with public partnership), provided the seed funding for the National Robotics League and annually funds scholarships for deserving students, thanks to the generous support of people like you.

As a manufacturer, what better investment can you make than to put your resources into the next generation? What would be more valuable than ensuring a bright future for our industry? Your support of the NTMF is vital for many reasons. Please consider a generous donation today.
