A Message From the Chair
Fo r ne a r l y 1 7
years , the DFI
Educational Trust has been missionfocused
on increasing the visibility of
DFI, its members and the deep
foundation industry to the best and
brightest students who will be the next
generation of designers, contractors,
equipment manufac turers and
industry leaders. We are thankful to all
awardees enter, stay and advance in the
industry speaks volumes to the Trust's
positive impact.
This would not be possible without
generous donations totaling nearly
$160,000 in 2022. Thank you to our
donors, and the tireless efforts of those
also supporting the Trust with their
time and talent. Although we fell short
of our 2022 fundraising goal, we are
truly grateful and hope to exceed this
amount in 2023. If every individual DFI
member made an annual $75 charitable
contribution starting in 2023, the
Trust could maintain, and in the future
exceed, the amount and number of
scholarships and grants currently
awarded each year.
The Trust's work to attract the

donors who have helped build the
Trust into a strong, stable, and impactful
organization with assets
exceeding $4 million. Despite a challenging
year in the financial markets,
the Trust boldly invested in the future
by awarding $341,250 in scholarships
and grants in 2022, a more than 70%
increase above 2021 award levels.
Since inception, the Trust has awarded
almost $2 million in scholarships and
grants to more than 500 recipients at
nearly 85 educational institutions.
What a fantastic result! The high rate at
which scholarship applicants and
highest-quality students to the industry
and DFI member companies continues.
Your continued financial support is
needed. Please consider making an
individual or corporate donation or
creating a lasting legacy by funding a
scholarship in honor of a company or
industry leader. With DFI's generous
support, all donations to the Trust will
once again go directly to the scholarships
awarded in 2023. Other ways to
support the Trust include attending or
sponsoring fundraisers like the Annual
Trust Gala, golf outings and Women in
Deep Foundations (WiDF) Committee
events; supporting student programs;
and being actively involved in DFI
throughout the year.
Thank you for your continued
support of the DFI Educational Trust.
Sincerely,
Rudolph P. Frizzi
