Charitable Contributions, Sponsorships and Volunteering:
In past years, Allison Transmission received requests for corporate contributions, community sponsorships and volunteerism from non-profit organizations and fundraisers all year long. These requests came to Allison through letters, phone call or e-mails. To better support these requests, Allison has transitioned to an online request process for new contributions, sponsorships and volunteerism.
Our new process has two steps. First, all requests must be submitted through this link . Second, after you have submitted your request, please send an e-mail to Garrett Bray, Community Relations Specialist, at Garrett.Bray@allisontransmission.com to confirm your submission.
This year, the window for requests is from Friday, March 1 to Friday, April 12, 2024. After this timeframe, we will not be able to accept requests until the new window opens in March 2025.
