Bob Martin, president and COO of Thor Industries, Inc., recently made a personal contribution of $5,000 toward the RV/MH Heritage Foundation’s “Burn the Bank Note” campaign. He presented his check in December following Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels’ visit to the RV/MH Hall of Fame and Museum (Hall) when the Governor presented his 2004 campaign motorhome to the museum which is on loan from the Indiana State Museum.

Thor Industries sponsored the presentation of the event.

Martin said, “The RV museum is a wonderful testament to the innovators and product innovations that have made the RV industry successful and resilient for over 100 years. We are proud to support this beautiful display of vintage and historically significant RVs.”

Hall President Darryl Searer said, “Bob’s personal donation is evidence that his commitment to the Hall’s success goes beyond Thor Industries’ continuing support. In addition to this contribution Bob was a driving force in Thor’s decision earlier this year to contribute $25,000 and another $25,000 from the Thompson Family Foundation Inc., a charitable foundation created by Wade F.B. Thompson, Thor co-founder.”

The “Burn the Bank Note” campaign’s goal is to raise $150,000 in voluntary contributions by April 30, 2013. If that goal is reached the Robert “Boots” Ingram family has offered a $50,000 challenge grant, and that would pay off the Hall’s bank note to 1st Source Bank.
Searer said that the bank loan to 1st Source Bank has gone from $840,000 in early 2012 to only about $200,000 now.

Searer said, “Since the RV/MH Heritage Foundation is a 501-c3 not-for-profit corporation, all donations are tax deductible. Donors can use our federal ID#: 35-1610362.to verify that we are a 501-c3 not-for-profit corporation in good standing with the IRS.

“Gifts may be made by mail, in person at the Hall, by phone at (800) 378-8694, or through the Hall’s web site: www.rvmhhalloffame.org.”
