Support the HVAC Industry with AmazonSmile
The EGIA Foundation is 501(c)3 non-profit organization formed by the Electric & Gas Industries Association (EGIA), aimed at expanding the benefits the public receives from the home services industry through education, research, and the development of the next generation of qualified workers. The EGIA Foundation encourages students to pursue HVAC careers by providing pathway plans, scholarship opportunities, positive ideals, resources, and personal connections.
In order to support the financial costs associated with funding in-depth industry research, promoting career paths in the home services industry, providing HVAC scholarships, and educating the public about the benefits of the trades, we have partnered with Amazon to raise funds through AmazonSmile, a program that gives us a small percentage of the purchases you already make when you shop online through Amazon. DON’T WORRY – It doesn’t cost you anything extra!
