Amador Learning Center Awarded $2500 Ethyl Grant


The Ethyl Grant program from the Foundation for Rural Education and Development awarded the Amador Community College Foundation a $2500 grant for computer equipment recently. 

The Ethyl Grant provides matching funds to rural communities that are involved with projects aimed at bettering their communities. The grants, ranging from $500 - $2,500 are awarded throughout the year.  An estimated $10,000 in funding is available in 2013.

Volcano Telephone Company nominated the Amador Community College Foundation for a $2500 Ethyl Grant from the Foundation for Rural Education and Development for the procurement of computer equipment for the Amador Learning Center.  This much needed equipment will be used with matching funds from the Amador Community College Foundation to access community college level distance education to our rural County in the Amador Learning Center. 

In endorsing our program, President Sharon Lundgren stated that “Volcano Telephone considers ACCF as a valuable asset to our community and has provided employee time in technology consultation and Board of Director Service for many years.”
