August 20, 2018
Earlier this month The Ingram State Technical College Foundation received a $6,250 grant award from the Central Alabama Community Foundation.
The ISTC Foundation was one of 13 River Region nonprofits to receive funds as part of CACF’s Family Wellness and Education competitive grants initiative.
“We appreciate the vision of the CACF board of directors in recognizing that many of our students need extra assistance to enter the workforce on equal footing, and their generosity in awarding these funds,” said ISTC president Annette Funderburk.
Foundation liaison Dr. Brannon Lentz said the funds will be used to assist ISTC graduates with expenses related to starting a job. “The grant will allow us to help graduates with licensure or certificate costs, tools and equipment, even safety gear if needed. Our goal is to ensure that students have basic resources needed to succeed on the job.”
Lentz said the funds will allow the foundation to assist a minimum of 25 ISTC graduates during the coming year.
