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.
The Foundation's endowment as of June 30, 2023: 104 individual funds totaling approximately $13.5 million
Adults from all walks of life look to Wake Tech for quality education and training that is affordable and accessible. The Foundation's mission is to make an education possible for anyone in our community who wants one – and donors help make that happen.
Every student has a story – and every story is unique – but they all benefit from the support of donors. Your generous gifts help Wake Tech continue its mission of changing lives through education.
The Foundation offers many opportunities and avenues in which to invest in the college. You may wish to give to the Wake Tech Fund, allowing the college the freedom to meet needs as they arise, or you may choose to designate part or all of your gift to a specific program, scholarship or fund.
"This scholarship means so much to me and helps allow me to continue on the path to refine and hone my education. I am so grateful and thankful for this gift, I cried tears of joy when I received the news I had been chosen. ... Thank you so much again for your generosity and for this opportunity to achieve my goals."
