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.
March 2019 - Our Donor of the Month is McAdams! Since 2002, McAdams has committed approximately $57,000 to support various Wake Tech departments and services, such as establishing the McAdams Engineering Endowment and sponsoring Wake Tech IGNITE and other college programs.
Established in 2015, the McAdams Engineering Endowment supports student scholarships in the Applied Engineering and Technology disciplines. The preferred focus is on Civil Engineering, Geomatics, or Landscape Architecture, but open to all AET degrees. The Wake Tech Foundation scholarship application is open March 1 to April 30.
