Jan 3, 2011

The UPS Foundation has provided another $26,000 in support of AIM pre-college program and the UPS Foundation Minority Scholarship.

Kettering University has received another $26,000 grant from The UPS Foundation, the charitable arm of UPS. 
The grant will contribute $10,000 to Kettering’s UPS Foundation Scholarships and $16,000 for students to participate in the Academically Interested Minorities (AIM) pre-college program on campus.

Kettering President Stan Liberty accepted the $26,000 check from Gina Hutchins, Corporate Industrial Engineering Manager at UPS, on Dec. 8.  She was representing Kettering Trustee Randy Stashick, vice president of Engineering at UPS, during the check presentation.
“We are very grateful to The UPS Foundation for this ongoing support,” said Kettering President Stan Liberty.  “I am especially appreciative of the dedicated help provided by Randy Stashick of UPS, who is a leading advocate for these programs on Kettering’s Board of Trustees,” he added.

Established in 1951 and based in Atlanta, Ga., The UPS Foundation identifies specific areas where its backing clearly impacts social issues.  In support of this strategic approach, The UPS Foundation has identified the following focus areas for giving: non-profit effectiveness, economic & global literacy, encouraging diversity, community safety and environmental sustainability.

In 2009, The UPS Foundation distributed $43.6 million worldwide through grants that benefit organizations or programs such as Kettering’s AIM program, which provides support for building stronger communities.

“The UPS Foundation is committed to funding impactful programs that make a meaningful difference in our communities – so we are proud to support Kettering’s efforts,” said Ken Sternad, president of The UPS Foundation.
