SUNY Canton Foundation Awards $30,000 for Campus Enhancements
The SUNY Canton College Foundation recently announced the recipients of the 7th annual Campus Enhancement Awards.
“These projects are made possible through unrestricted donations, which are an important resource the College utilizes to fund creative and innovative projects that benefit our community,” said Vice President for Advancement and Executive Director of the SUNY Canton College Foundation David M. Gerlach. “We are extremely grateful to all of the donors who have supported the Foundation.”
Some unrestricted donations come directly from SUNY Canton faculty and staff members. Last year, more than 230 employees donated approximately $60,000 to the Foundation via payroll deductions.

- A student field trip to the United Nations building in New York City.
- Funds for students to attend the 2013 Regional Steel Bridge Competition.
- New equipment and other upgrades to the student resource library.
