WT Foundation

Our Mission

Established to promote scholarship and research in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), the WT Foundation provides an annual grant of $1,500 to a graduating senior from District 211 high schools in Schaumburg or Hoffman Estates. Additionally, in 2015 the WT Foundation established a parallel program granting an annual $1,500 scholarship to a child of the WT Group company.

The award check will be made payable to the scholarship recipient and the school they select. Students will be responsible for informing their college and Career Counselor of the school they plan to attend.

As needed, we will fundraise by personal solicitations. Endorsing what this foundation stands for and funding will be our purpose. We may also apply for grants through other foundations, where funds are available to us.

Scholarships are named after and in honor of our two late CEO's:

Scott R. Triphahn
Late CEO
1957 - 2010

Stephan T. Triphahn
Late CEO
1959 - 2021
