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 2019 - David Weekley Homes, a first-time donor to Wake Tech, is our Donor of the Month! David Weekley Homes recently pledged $20,000 to establish the David Weekley Homes Building Dreams Scholarship. This scholarship will focus on current students pursuing a degree in the Applied Engineering Technologies Division, with a focus on Heating & A/C, Electrical Systems Technology, Welding and Plumbing. Students at the Vernon Malone Academy who want to continue their studies in trades at Wake Tech will also be eligible.
David Weekley Homes began in 1976 in Houston, Texas, and has grown to become the largest privately-held home builder in America. They are passionate about their customers, building exceptional homes, and the communities in which we live and work.
A BIG THANK YOU to David Weekley Homes for your dedication and support!
