What if every student met their potential?
Since 1984, our purpose has been to provide financial assistance to the students of Francis Tuttle Technology Center. Through scholarships and emergency funding, the Francis Tuttle Foundation is helping students overcome financial obstacles to achieve their academic goals, and ultimately, successful entry into the workforce.
We do this through gifts and grants from our employees, our alumni, and the community.
Dear FT Foundation, I’m at a loss for words. There were and still are so many obstacles that have been thrown my way, and giving up was beginning to look like my only option. I made a promise to my mom before she passed away that I’d stop at nothing and finish my schooling. You guys brought my head above water and gave me the space I needed to keep fighting my moving those obstacles out of my way and for that, I owe you. I will do everything I can to repay you guys by graduating and paying blessings forward. Thank you.
Helping me with my fees made a real difference in my life and career. Thank you!
It is an honor to be a part of the Francis Tuttle family. I applied for assistance because I lost my job and was unable to afford to live on my own. The financial assistance you provided allowed me to keep my car, which helped me get another job and provided me with transportation to be able to make it to classes. Thank you for your generosity and support. I promise you I will continue to work very hard and eventually give back to others.
Dear Good Samaritan, I just want you to know you took a huge weight off of my shoulders. With the money you provided me with, I bought a bed, I was sleeping on the ground before. I also paid off my loan. I can’t thank you enough; it was the last thing I expected. Thank you very much; you’ve helped me more than words can explain.
I have to start by saying how grateful I am for the financial assistance that was given to me in such a speedy and timely manner. This will help me pay off the last bit that I owed towards my tuition. I was in a state of stress; I had no clue how I was going to do it. I saw all of my hard work and dedication going down the drain right before my eyes because I did not know how I would come up with the money to continue my education. I can’t even put into words how thankful I am for this. I am so much closer to completing my course and starting my career now. From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much!
I write these few words which will never still be enough to portray the emotions running in me right now. I feel like there are stars in my stomach. No one has ever experienced what you have made me feel. You are a miracle to me, my entire family, and the world! I can never say enough. I believe miracles do happen because of the support you have given me.
