The WTC Foundation Inspire Program provides a straightforward method for staff and faculty to directly request funds from the WTC Foundation for projects supporting education and cultural activities or campus improvements and development.
The program has grown each year since its inception in 2016, and the fall 2018 round of applications was the largest yet with a total of 9 applicants.
The fall 2018 Inspire applications were thoroughly discussed and reviewed at the 2018 October WTC Foundation Board of Directors Meeting. The Foundation generously awarded $26,400.00 to faculty and staff for various projects to benefit WTC.
