The Alliance asks you to consider donating online to the Melvin Kruger Endowed Scholarship Program Campaign. Your commitment to the scholarship program can help make a difference in students' lives and increase the number of scholarships awarded annually.
The scholarship program was created as a permanent endowment to provide scholarships to college and vocational-technical school students who plan to pursue a career in the roofing or building construction industries. NRCA contractor and supplier members, their immediate family members, and members' full-time employees and/or their immediate family members are eligible.
The scholarship program recognizes one of the industry's greatest leaders, Melvin Kruger, of L.E. Schwartz & Son Inc., Macon, Ga., a former NRCA president and the principal fundraiser at the time the Alliance was established. The Alliance's goal is to raise $600,000 in pledges and gifts to fulfill its goal of $2 million and distribute 25 $5,000 scholarship awards annually.
You can make your mark on the future of the roofing industry by establishing a scholarship in your name or your company's name. When you make a commitment of $50,000, you can choose to name the scholarship and participate in the selection of the recipient each year. Donors will be publically recognized online and at numerous events.
