InSinkErator® Sponsors PHCC Educational Foundation for 25th YearSubscribe to RSS feed

Today, InSinkErator®, a business unit of St. Louis-based Emerson Electric Co. (NYSE: EMR) and the largest manufacturer of food waste disposers and instant hot water dispensers, announced its support for the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors (PHCC) Educational Foundation’s 2013 “Invest in Your Future” annual giving campaign. It’s the company’s 25th consecutive year of helping fund education programs for contractors and scholarships for future industry professionals. 

InSinkErator presented a $25,000 donation to the “Invest in Your Future” campaign at CONNECT 2012, the 130th PHCC-National Association convention held October in Philadelphia.

“Our programs provide work force development, technical training and management education to advance the growth of industry professionals. Together with the PHCC National Auxiliary, our scholarships alone have helped nearly 2,000 students pay for their education,” said PHCC Educational Foundation Chairperson Bill Jones. “This campaign and the programs it supports would not be possible without annual support and matching gifts from InSinkErator.”  

PHCC Educational Foundation’s “Invest in Your Future” annual giving campaign is a collaborative effort of InSinkErator, PHCC Educational Foundation and PHCC National Auxiliary. The campaign is the primary fundraising vehicle for both the foundation’s contractor education efforts and the National Auxiliary’s scholarship programs. Since the PHCC National Auxiliary and the PHCC Educational Foundation began their respective scholarship programs, more than $3 million has been awarded to young men and women across the nation. Those who donated in 2012 had a one-third matching gift from InSinkErator applied to their donation. 

PHCC Educational Foundation’s 2013 campaign goal has been set at $145,000. Contributors seeking to support the industry with a tax-deductible gift can contact the PHCC Educational Foundation office directly by calling 800-533-7694, or by visiting http://www.foundation.phccweb.org/Invest. The PHCC Educational Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and contributions to the foundation are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
