CTEF Raises $40K in Donations
Pendleton, SC, August 18, 2021-The Ceramic Tile Education Foundation (CTEF) acknowledges the individuals who responded to the $10,000 matching grant from the National Tile Contractors Association (NTCA) to financially support CTEF. Twenty-three individuals in the tile industry donated over $5,000 in gifts. Combined with three corporate gifts received and the NTCA matching grant, the total raised amounts to just over $40,000.
CTEF, like many other non-profit organizations, has been challenged during the pandemic to maintain its daily functions so it can be ready for the pent-up demand that has already begun. Funding allows CTEF to reinstate in-house tile training classes and expand the schedule of Certified Tile Installer (CTI) and Advanced Certified Tile Installer (ACT) testing programs.
