Frueauff Foundation awards Tabor $50K grant

Tabor College has been awarded another $50,000 grant from the Charles A. Frueauff Foundation, Little Rock, Ark., to help fund an automated library system.

This is the second such grant the foundation has given for this cause. The funding from this foundation, along with a portion of student technology fees and some state grant money, will make this project a reality.

This is the latest of eight grants Tabor College has received from the Frueauff Foundation, totaling $355,000 in the last seven years. This grant will allow Tabor College to provide better access to library resources, offer gateway access to remote resources, improve the efficiency of off-site electronic access to local and remote resources from user’s homes, offices and schools, and will create one efficient system for all library processes.

“Offering quality education in today’s rapidly changing world requires that we partner with others in an effort to assure our students that the best of technology and services are available to them,” said Larry Nikkel, Tabor College president. “The Frueauff Foundation has been such a partner. We thank them for their continuing investment in Tabor College.”

Frueauff grant money has formerly been used to equip Tabor’s science labs with current scientific instrumentation and allowed for two new technological majors: “computer systems administration,” and “art and design.”

The Frueauff Foundation was founded in memory of Charles A. Frueauff, a successful New York attorney who gave time and resources to many New York charitable organizations. In its 50 years of existence, the foundation has sought to improve the lives of those in need by making generous grants to nonprofit organizations in the areas of health and hospitals, higher education and social services.
