The HARVEST Education Foundation is a non-profit education foundation created by the Michigan Manufactured Housing, Recreation Vehicle and Campground Association in 1991. Recently, the Self Storage Association of Michigan was added to the HARVEST family. 

HARVEST establishes educational programs and opportunities for students who wish to make a career in the RV and campground, manufactured housing or self-storage industry. 
In some cases, HARVEST will award scholarships to students even though their career goals may not lead them back to these industries. In cases like these, awards will be made to outstanding scholars or students with compelling needs. 

Since the foundation's inception, HARVEST has granted $282,325 in university and college scholarships to 540 students. In addition, HARVEST has been the recipient of numerous research/study grants from the University of Michigan, Michigan State University and the Traffic Safety Association of Michigan. The foundation also coordinates short-term education seminars and meetings for association members. 

HARVEST is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation and receives 100 percent tax-deductible gifts from individuals and corporations. It also accepts grants from other nonprofit organizations and state and federal agencies.
