ASCTE Foundation Mission
The Alabama School of Cyber Technology and Engineering Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation was established in January 2018 to benefit the school. The foundation’s mission is three-fold.
First, the foundation was established to promote and connect the school with critical industry, academia, and government partners.
Second, the foundation assists the School Board of Trustees with the planning of all necessary goals and objectives for the successful establishment of the school.
Third, the foundation assists with securing funding for real property, equipment, and curriculum as well as extracurricular and margin of excellence programs. The ASCTE Foundation’s goal is to raise the total amount of funds ($30 million) necessary to pay for the ASCTE campus.
