The “Wall of Giving” was constructed by the Albany Tech Masonry program and honors the donors who gave in the college’s previous annual giving campaigns, which originally kicked off in 1999. Levels include “Legacy,” which includes a list of donors at one million and up; “President” – donors of $100,000 to $999,999; “Trustee – donors of $10,000 to $99,999; and “Titan” – donors of $1,000 to $9,999.
The event marks the official kickoff of a new annual giving campaign entitled “Changing Lives: Paving the Way to a Powerful Future.” A kickoff luncheon will be held immediately following the wall dedication where donors will be invited to hear success stories and to consider continuation of annual giving.
The Albany Tech Foundation, Inc. was established in 1987 to support the College, its programs and activities. Thanks to the generosity of Albany Tech’s supporters working with the Foundation, the College has received outright or has purchased the equipment necessary for instructional programs, has awarded tools of the trade to deserving graduates and has purchased equipment through matching grant opportunities.
The Albany Tech Foundation, Inc. hosts various fundraisers each year, including a “Roast" each spring. The funds raised through these events go towards scholarships and other foundation and college programs and activities.
