CPTC Foundation Receives Grant Support from Community Partners

The Clover Park Technical College Foundation is pleased to announce it has received several awards from local establishments to support a variety of programs at the college.

Awards received toward the college’s Emergency Grant program include $2,000 from Walmart Store 4137 in Tacoma, $750 from Walmart Store 3850 in Tumwater and $250 from Walmart Store 5041 in Bonney Lake.

The college’s Emergency Grant program assists students with emergency needs that could potentially prevent them from continuing their education. Students are supported with aid for basic needs, including housing and food.

An additional award of $500 was received from Walmart Store 3825 in Puyallup for the Emerging Needs program, which supports academic programs, recruitment and retention, international programs, scholarships and emergency grants.

The Foundation also received a $500 award from the Shopko Foundation to support the college’s annual Career Conference.
