For a second year, the Central Alabama Community Foundation has awarded grant funds to support graduates of Ingram State Technical College. The grant was one of 15 awards totaling over $87,000 made to River Region non-profits that support education initiatives in Autauga, Elmore and Montgomery counties.
At an award ceremony in August, CACF president Burton Crenshaw presented The Ingram State Technical College Foundation with a check in the amount of $9,800 to provide industry certification testing, tools and safety gear for 43 Ingram graduates.
“We are so pleased to have once again received funding from Central Alabama Community Foundation,” said ISTC president Annette Funderburk. “Their generous gifts play a vital role in our graduate’s re-entry journey, providing resources that help overcome barriers to employment.”
In 2018, CACF awarded The Ingram State Technical College Foundation $6,250 which was used to provide 25 students with tools and equipment.
