NEW YORK CITY—Thornton Tomasetti, Inc., a building engineering and design firm, has established the Thornton Tomasetti Foundation to support the education and community outreach activities of young engineers and architects.
"The Foundation builds on our heritage of support of education and community outreach," said Richard Tomasetti, chairman of Thornton Tomasetti Foundation and founding principal of Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.
The foundation, a tax-exempt, non-profit organization, has two primary missions:
- fund fellowships, scholarships and internships for undergraduate students, and those planning to pursue graduate studies in building engineering, design, or technology; and
- provide financial support for individuals and organizations pursuing philanthropic activities related to building engineering, design, or technology.
Key elements of the program are college scholarships, traveling internships, and grants to, and partnerships with, nonprofit organizations.
"The Foundation will take our outreach to the next level," said Joel Weinstein, vice chairman of the Foundation. "It will give back not only to the design professional community, but also to the building industry as a whole."
