Bank of America Awards Grant to ATC Foundation for New Scholarship

Bank of America recognized the Aiken Technical College Foundation along with eight other local nonprofits May 24 in an event celebrating their ongoing partnerships.

Bank of America is focused on building pathways to economic mobility by addressing the issues of basic needs and workforce development and education. To highlight a recent round of funding, Bank of America hosted the nonprofits and discussed the impact the funding is having on local programming and how it’s positively affecting the lives of 17,481 individuals in the community.

Bank of America recently presented a $5,000 grant to the ATC Foundation to fund a Transitional Studies Book Scholarship. Transitional Studies programs help students who are not prepared for college level work improve their skills in reading, writing or math.

“We’re grateful to Bank of America for their support,” said ATC Foundation Director Mary Commons. “The funding will make college more affordable by helping to pay for books for students in our transitional studies courses.”

Funding awarded in the Augusta and Aiken area is part of nearly $43 million in grants that Bank of America is providing across the country to advance economic mobility through workforce development and basic needs.

The ATC Foundation was formed in 1977 to acquire and manage resources to benefit the mission and goals of Aiken Technical College and to strengthen community relationships. The ATC Foundation’s fundraising activities support scholarships, professional development, facilities, educational equipment and materials, and program development and expansion at ATC.
