DFI Magazine July/August 2020 - AR2

Message from the Trust Chair
I am pleased to present the 2019 Trust Annual Report, which is also available online at www.dfitrust.org. Thanks to the year
ending with some good investment returns, the Trust for the first time had assets in excess of $4 million, a significant increase
from the prior year. More importantly, the Trust awarded over $150,000 in scholarships during 2019. I am also pleased to report
that, in December of 2019, the Trust was awarded a $50,000 grant from the Terracon Foundation to start a scholarship fund
in Terracon's name. This is thanks to Terracon employee and Trust board member Andrew Verity's applying for the grant along
with DFI staff's expert assistance. As part of the process we were interviewed by the Foundation's board and Andrew did an
excellent job of explaining how important DFI and the Educational Trust are to the industry and how his involvement in both has
benefited him and Terracon as a whole.
The Trust has also supported the DFI Women in Deep Foundations (WiDF) Committee since its inception. The goal is to foster
greater success and interest of professional women in the industry by promoting networking events, endorsing outreach and
building mentoring relationships. The Trust's Women in Deep Foundations Fund has been awarding professional development
grants to deserving women to cover travel costs to attend DFI's annual conference (along with a free registration from DFI)
for several years now. The WiDF Committee filmed an exceptional video during the 2019 annual conference that answers the
question: "What is the geotechnical field?" Their enthusiastic members take you from the office to project sites and through
the many roles available in the geotechnical field including designing, supplying specialty equipment and materials, managing,
constructing, and more.
The Trust's scholarships provide significant financial support to our student recipients so they can realize their dream of
completing their undergraduate or graduate civil engineering education. College expenses continue to rise dramatically and so
does the level of debt students take on in order to meet these costs.
We therefore ask you to support our efforts by making a personal or corporate donation to the DFI Educational Trust this year
as an investment in the future of our industry. Any amount you donate will make a difference. We need to attract more young
people and women into all aspects of our industry whether as a contractor, consultant, supplier, academic or owner. You can
make your donation online by visiting www.dfitrust.org. We look forward to your support.
Sincerely,
Tracy Brettmann
