Kobelco Cranes donates $25,000 to SC&R Foundation
04 March 2008
Houston, TX-based Kobelco Cranes North America has donated $25,000 to the SC&R Foundation, a foundation of the Specialized Carriers & Rigging Association. The donation comes as a boost to the foundation as it launches its next major gifts campaign in 2008, according to the SC&RA. The funds will facilitate foundation efforts to expand its scholarship and grant program, and industry-specific research projects.
“Business is very good at Kobelco,” said Jack Fendrick, general manager. “Because SC&RA has been good to Kobelco, we thought this was a nice way to give a little bit back.”
In 2007, the foundation awarded $23,000 to students for scholarships and funded the $20,000 Pilot Car Escort Regional Uniformity Program study.
Information on the major gifts campaign will be sent to all SC&RA members in the first quarter of 2008. Donations for the campaign can also be made in 2007. Please designate “major gifts campaign” on the check to earmark the funds. Contact Rebecca Page at (703) 207-2582 or firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
