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.
A donor since 2015, Whiting-Turner is our January 2018 Donor of the Month. Whiting-Turner has donated approximately $35,000 to support Wake Tech students and programs through the Whiting-Turner Engineering Excellence Award, which benefits Wake Tech Associates in Engineering students, as well as the Great Teachers Symposium (GST). The GST is a different type of seminar with one main goal: better teaching. The seminar gives Wake Tech faculty the opportunity to talk about their unique problems and to receive specific solutions—ones that can be immediately implemented into the classroom.
Whiting-Turner provides construction management, general contracting, design-build and integrated project delivery services on projects small and large for a diverse group of customers.
A BIG THANK YOU to Whiting-Turner for your dedication to our community! We are grateful for your partnership and support!
