Latest MCA of Chicago Pledge Pushes MCERF Contributions to $500,000

January 25, 2016

The MCA of Chicago has recently completed its $375,000 pledge to the Mechanical Contracting Education & Research Foundation (MCERF) with a final $10,000 contribution. But the association’s generosity isn’t stopping there. Recently, the MCA Board of Directors decided to renew its pledge for another ten years, beginning in 2017…in the amount of $125,000, raising its total contributions to $500,000!

MCA of Chicago’s Steve Lamb noted, “MCA of Chicago is firmly committed to the guiding concepts of the Foundation, and we are pleased to be the first local affiliate to attain the half-million-dollar mark in helping to pursue these goals. We hope that in doing so, we encourage other affiliate organizations to participate financially in this most worthwhile enterprise.”

The MCERF Board of Trustees is very grateful for the association’s commitment to and support of the Foundation, which will ensure the continuation of its education and research programs that help our industry grow and thrive.
