SWR Foundation

About the SWR Foundation
The Sealant, Waterproofing & Restoration Foundation (SWR Foundation) was established in 1999 for the purpose to provide both educational scholarships to assist and encourage students in pursuing careers in our industry but also provide support of research, technical information and training activities. When donating to the SWR Foundation the contributor is assured that their monies will be used as they direct. 

SWR Foundation Vision
  • Provide financial support through scholarships to individuals who want to get into the industry or are already in the industry seeking professional growth – either through vocational programs, apprentice programs, universities or other industry continuing educational programs approved by the Foundation Committee.
  • Focus on promoting effective outside communications to targeted organizations and corporations about the mission of the Sealant, Waterproofing & Restoration Foundation.
  • Provide financial support to outside professional speakers for educational programs hosted by the Sealant, Waterproofing & Restoration Institute.
  • Establish a support fund which the Sealant, Waterproofing & Restoration Foundation can conservatively invest and use to supplement educational activities.
