Each June, NRCA holds National Roofing Week to share the pride of being a roofing professional and celebrate the generosity of the roofing industry. This year, we will celebrate the roofing industry June 2-8.
On Friday, June 7, NRCA will be holding a Giving Day to benefit the Roofing Alliance's Melvin Kruger Endowed Scholarship Program—a program recognizing one of the industry's greatest leaders, Melvin Kruger, of L.E. Schwartz & Son Inc., Macon, Ga., a former NRCA president and a principal fundraiser at the time the Roofing Alliance was established.
Please consider giving generously and making a commitment to the scholarship fund! Our goal is to raise $100,000 in gifts to provide additional scholarships to college and vocational-technical school students who plan to pursue careers in the roofing or building construction industries (which includes architecture; business management; civil, mechanical or structural engineering; and construction management majors).
The Roofing Alliance, NRCA's foundation, has a long history of commitment to education, training and scholarship, and when you donate to the Melvin Kruger Endowed Scholarship Program, you can help shape the future of the roofing industry—one student at a time. Donations of any size are welcome and currently are being accepted here; Giving Day donations will close at 11:59 p.m. CST June 7.
Donations are tax-deductible as charitable contributions to the extent permitted under federal tax law and can be paid over a period of up to and including five years. And remember, with your support we can change lives and help shape the future of our industry.
