The UA-Pulaski Technical College Foundation has received a $315,000 grant from the Windgate Foundation to fund equipment purchase for the college’s theater space and for general scholarship support.
UA-Pulaski Technical College announced the new grant on Nov. 18. This is not the first grant that the Windgate Foundation has given to Pulaski Tech. The foundation created a $1 million dollar general scholarship endowment for the UA-PTC Foundation in 2018. Windgate also contributed to the college’s CHARTS capital campaign in 2015.
“We are thrilled to announce this wonderful gift from The Windgate Foundation in support of our students and their education. Because of their generosity, our students are offered opportunities which they may never be able to have otherwise,” Shannon Boshears, vice chancellor of advancement and UA-PTC Foundation executive director, said in a statement. “Many lives have been changed as a result of the continued support from The Windgate Foundation over the past several years here at UA-PTC – from our students to the community in general. They have all benefited from these opportunities.”
In addition to scholarship support, the new grant will provide new equipment for the UA-PTC’s Center for Humanities and Arts (CHARTS).
