Women's Technology Council (WTC) Endowment Fund

The New York Institute of Technology Women’s Technology Council (WTC) Endowment Fund helps the WTC fulfill its mission to support women, including students, alumni, faculty, staff and friends, through mentorship, events, and resources to advance their careers, assume leadership positions and contribute to building an inclusive and diverse workforce.

The WTC Endowment Fund aims to raise $2 million in 2020 in support of the above mission. But raising this amount is only the beginning. By helping the WTC, you’ll be investing in a future generation of empowered women through endowed professorships, workshops, career fairs, scholarships, conferences, entrepreneurial pitch events, mentoring sessions, and other programs.

“As a member of the Board of Trustees at New York Institute of Technology, I am continually impressed with the quality of education it offers and the caliber of its staff and faculty,” says Catherine Allen, president and CEO of the Santa Fe Group. “The WTC's support of women in technology is a great example of the student- and community-focus of the institution, and its President, Hank Foley. Please join me in this effort, which makes a real difference for women, especially those who are first-generation college students and/or new to our country.”

“Providing access to opportunity and empowering students to reinvent the future using their education is what New York Tech is all about,” adds President Henry C. “Hank” Foley. “The WTC Endowment Fund is a further continuation of our mission and will help countless women achieve their personal and professional goals. Thank you to everyone who supports this initiative, which represents an important step forward in creating a diverse, 21st-century workforce.”

We welcome individual donors, corporations, and foundations to join us as Founders.*
