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.
February 2021: Our Donor of the Month is Duke Energy! Since 1993, Duke Energy and their related Foundation have given more than $600K to support Wake Tech and our students! Most recently, they awarded the college a second grant for their continued support of Applied Engineering Technologies Workforce Training & Apprenticeships for underrepresented populations.
Duke Energy has also supported other areas, such as Mission Critical Operations - training in process automation and wastewater management systems - and SkillsUSA, in addition to providing grant funding for the creation of the Computer Controlled Welding certificate program to train students in the specialty areas of orbital and robotic welding.
Thank you Duke Energy and the Duke Energy Foundation for being strong advocates for Wake Tech and the community.
Our vision is to become a dynamic community college foundation with the relationships and resources necessary to fulfill the unmet needs of Wake Technical Community College.
