Madison, Wis. (December 16, 2020) – Henry J. Predolin Foundation is pleased to announce a grant of $785,000 to Edgewood College. This grant will provide scholarships at Edgewood College for nearly 120 students, and make possible the acquisition of sophisticated lab equipment for the new Health Science-Respiratory Care program.
“Edgewood College as a community is grateful for this support from Predolin Foundation, whose impact is in many ways beyond measure,” President Manion said. “Predolin Foundation’s strong history of support is made manifest in the lives of our students and alumni, who serve our communities both here in our state, and across the country.”
Over the past 13 consecutive years Edgewood College has received a total of more than $10 million in support from Predolin Foundation.
