Ehrlich Toyota arranges $10,000 donation to College Promise Scholarship Program at Aims Community CollegeSubmitted on: 10-05-2012
GREELEY – The Aims Community College Foundation just announced a gift of $5,000 from Toyota Motor Sales in California and a matching $5,000 gift from Ehrlich Toyota of Greeley to the College Promise Scholarship fund at Aims.
“It was exciting to hear Scott’s announcement at the recent scholarship reception,” said Aims Community College President Marsi Liddell. “His gift comes at an ideal time. We are already planning forward for the 2013-2014 academic year. This scholarship offsets the majority of the costs associated with student’s first year of concentrated study at Aims.”
The College Promise Scholarship fund at Aims was initiated in June 2007 with a leadership gift from Scott Ehrlich. Since that time, over 650 students have applied to Aims due to the Promise. Of those who applied, 35 students have received associate degrees since inception of the program. One hundred additional certificates were awarded to students studying healthcare, automotive, education, welding, and other programs as offered at Aims.
“When I first introduced the concept, I wasn’t sure how many students would be affected”, said Scott Ehrlich founder of the College Promise Program. “I wanted to provide a partnership opportunity for Aims and School District 6. It is humbling to know that it is working.”
Since it was established in 1974, the Toyota Foundation has provided grants to projects in a wide variety of areas relating to human and natural environments, social welfare, and education and culture, in line with the Foundation’s philosophy of “contributing to the realization of a human-oriented society for the sake of greater human happiness.”
