The donation to the Arizona Leadership Foundation funds K–12 scholarships to private schools
Sentry presented a $200,000 check to the Arizona Leadership Foundation. The donation will fund scholarships to private schools for students who are disabled or displaced or from low-income families.
Drew Winegar, Sentry associate director of Claims, presented the check at a Beat the Pro exhibition at Top Golf in Scottsdale. Joining in the presentation was PGA TOUR player Joel Dahmen, who played against members of the St. Mary’s High School golf team at the exhibition.
“Sentry is committed to making a difference and investing in the communities we call home,” Winegar said. “With this donation, we hope many more financially disadvantaged Arizona schoolchildren will have access to the learning environment that best suits their needs.”
Sentry has a long history of funding education initiatives, including scholarships at 17 public and private colleges in Wisconsin, where the company is based.
The Arizona Leadership Foundation provides scholarships through a tax credit program that allows companies to receive a dollar-for-dollar corporate income tax credit for each dollar it donates.
