JASPER, IN – National Office Furniture recently announced the launch of its $25,000 Gift of Inspiration for Education. Response to last year’s $10,000 Gift of Inspiration for Education Environments was such a success that the commercial office furniture company will offer a similar donation to another deserving educational entity this year—this time for an increased sum of $25,000. Recognizing that the nation’s education industry is faced with many challenges today, National continues to be inspired by those organizations who serve in communities across the country, and wishes to inspire others with an opportunity to win a $25,000 “Gift of Inspiration.”
Aimed at inspiring learning organizations, once awarded, the donation may be used to support scholarship funds, endowments, learning materials, or other important educational, training and developmental programs that enhance the learning experience.
Any educational learning or developmental institution may enter the 2010 giveaway now through August 31, 2010. Organizations may simply register at www.nationalofficefurniture.com/education, and will be automatically entered to win the $25,000 Gift of Inspiration. No purchase is necessary.
“We are very excited to offer our second Gift of Inspiration for Education by providing a great opportunity for another learning institution to further enrich the lives of its students and educators. We know this gift will inspire ideas and help build stronger communities, as it did for Southwest Middle School in 2009,” says Kevin McCoy, general manager, National Office Furniture. “We were pleased to learn that the school utilized the donation to start an after-school mentoring and tutoring program for its at-risk students.”
This is the third Gift of Inspiration program from National. In May 2009, National announced its $10,000 Gift of Inspiration for Education, won by the aforementioned Southwest Middle School of Savannah, Georgia. In November 2009, National announced its $25,000 Gift of Inspiration for Healthcare; that winner will be announced in May 2010. The Gift of Inspiration for Healthcare may be used to support the needs of health care environments in areas such as technology, the patient experience, staff morale, training and enrichment programs, or facility enhancements.
