STI Cares Foundation: Driving Community Outreach & Support

As the world becomes increasingly more demanding, the hardships faced by many families become increasingly difficult to bear. The STI Cares Foundation is committed to strengthening communities through locally based fundraising efforts, volunteerism, and the supporting of educational needs.

quotesWe have a history of long-term relationships with school districts and the families they serve. STI Cares is an invaluable opportunity for us to show our customers and our employees that we are not just partners in the community – we truly are part of the community.

Douglas Gallagher

President of STI Cares Foundation

Foundation Facts

  • Student Transportation Inc. founded its first charitable organization, the STA Education Foundation (STAEF), in 2003 to provide scholarships to high school students.
  • STAEF went on to raise nearly $1 Million and award hundreds of scholarships across North America.
  • In 2012, STI established a fundraising partnership with Denny & Mark’s Pro-Am Jam, a celebrity music and golf event led by the partnership of STI’s CEO Denis Gallagher, NASCAR driver Denny Hamlin, and Hootie & the Blowfish songwriter and musician Mark Bryan, that has raised over $700,000 in its first four years. Given the integral role and involvement of Denis Gallagher in this event and the partnership, the event has now become the Denis, Denny & Mark’s Pro-Am Jam.
  • STI Cares was created in 2016, in response to a growing need throughout STI’s operating locations for a more encompassing support and outreach platform.
  • STI Cares is managed and based out of Charleston, South Carolina.
