Terracon announces Terracon Foundation grant recipient

BETTENDORF, Iowa --- The Terracon Foundation recently awarded a community grant in the amount of $2,500 to the Family Enrichment Center of Davenport (FEC). Awarded annually, the Terracon Foundation community grant supports local, nonprofit programs with active engagement of employees in communities where Terracon employees live and work.

FEC aims to transform the lives of families/ individuals in the Goose Creek Heights neighborhood by providing intensive educational, social and recreational programming so that each participant can become a successful, positive and productive member of the Quad Cities community.

Kathy Toft and Terry Markle, both from Terracon's Bettendorf office are involved with FEC, championed the grant. Kevin Kellums, Executive Director of FEC, proudly accepted.

"FEC exists to eradicate poverty one neighborhood at a time, and has been working diligently to build a new facility. Terracon has been a valuable partner in consultation, financially supporting various fundraisers, and now through the new Terracon Community grant. Terracon already has a strong reputation in the Quad Cities for excellence in professional services. This generous donation exhibits their impact in the community. FEC is proud to be a recipient of the grant. We look forward to putting these funds to excellent use," said Kellums.


The Terracon Foundation was established in 2008 and expanded considerably last year to provide a broader range of grant opportunities. The Terracon Foundation also provides national partner grants, university grants and employee scholarships.

Terracon is an employee-owned engineering consulting firm with more than 2,800 employees providing geotechnical, environmental, construction materials and facilities services from more than 130 offices in 39 states nationwide.
