3M, Ed. Foundation Donate $10K to Pair of Schools
May 16, 2019—3M and the Collision Repair Education Foundation (CREF) have announced the establishment of the 3M and CREF Grant; Growing the Collision Education Programs of Tomorrow.
The new grant program, funded by 3M, will provide two collision schools in markets where 3M has facilities with $10,000 each to support the advancement of their programs. The local 3M community will also work to help the schools that receive the grant.
The two schools that will receive the grant include:
- Greenville Technical College, a CREF Benchmark Tier 1 school in Greenville, S.C.
- South Central College, a CREF Benchmark Tier 2 school in North Mankato, Minn.
The grant funds will be used to pay for tools and equipment to enhance the training opportunities they provide to the next generation of collision industry professionals studying in the schools. The grant will enable South Central College to achieve the CREF Benchmark Tier 1 status.
