The site provides user-friendly resources to connect with donors, academics, students and stakeholders in the $1 trillion commercial equipment finance industry.

It includes academic programs and research opportunities, as well as simplified download capability for all its research library content.

Regularly released reports are compiled under an industry resources section, the ‘giving’ section has been expanded and ‘academic programs’ has an enhanced number of resources.

Bill Verhelle, chairman of the Equipment Leasing and Finance Foundation, said “We wanted the foundation website to reflect the organization’s expanded mission."

The Equipment Leasing & Finance Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring innovation and contributing to the improvement of the equipment leasing and finance industry.

It is funded exclusively through charitable individual and corporate donations.

Verhelle added: "The foundation is supported by a committed group of industry volunteers, and by individual and corporate charitable donors.  We greatly appreciate the generosity of our volunteers and donors.”
