The Wake Tech Foundation cultivates and manages an array of resources critical to Wake Tech Community College’s success: corporate investments, private grants, alumni and employee contributions, and financial and in-kind support from many other friends of the college.
These resources allow the college to meet instructional and institutional needs and continue to offer top-quality, affordable education and training to the Wake County region.
January 2019 - This month's Donors of the Month are our Fostering Bright Futures (FBF) supporters, specifically those who gave to last month's holiday party! FBF donors raised approximately $20,000 to provide students with a holiday celebration to remember - including dinner and desserts for FBF students, mentors, support staff and families. The night culminated with a visit from Santa and the opening of gifts by the students - a first for several who never had the chance to experience the joy of the holidays in their youth. Here's a quick recap from the event.
Fostering Bright Futures is a student success program that addresses the overwhelming need for a comprehensive support structure to assist our community's foster youth in making the transition from Wake County's foster care program to independent young adulthood. The objective of the FBF program is to eliminate barriers that would typically derail foster youth from meeting educational and life goals.
A BIG THANK YOU to our Fostering Bright Futures supporters for your dedication and support!
