I-TAP Is Now a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Organization!
December 16, 2020
At I-TAP, our mission is to give people in the Sacramento community the educational tools they need to get jobs as commercial electricians, enriching and improving both their own lives, and the lives of their families. As part of our ongoing goal to support all current and future students, I-TAP has become a nonprofit organization.
What is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization?
Nonprofit status was designed for organizations which operate strictly for the good of the community, and do not aim to generate a profit for owners or shareholders. A 501(c)(3) organization is defined by the IRS as a type of organization that provides an educational, scientific, literary, religious, or other similar service to the public. We think I-TAP fits this mold perfectly.
How does our nonprofit status affect current and future students?
Though we are now an established nonprofit, our goal is the same: teach students the knowledge required to become electricians.
We believe that the quality of your education is not based on the private or nonprofit status of a school—the quality of your education is based on the quality of the teachers, and the people who help run a school.
I-TAP’s staff is dedicated to providing the best possible electrical training education. To that end, we design and print all of our curriculum materials in-house, combining the wealth of knowledge, practical expertise, and years of experience of our electrical teachers to guide the curriculum.
We also consider that the cost of getting an education stops many people from pursuing their dreams. That is a key reason why we are doing everything we can—including becoming a nonprofit—to always be an accessible option for everyone. At I-TAP, the total cost of an education is approximately $16,500. That is about half of the $29,470 you would have to pay to get a four-year degree at Sacramento State, and less than one-third of the $57,980 you would pay in four years at UC Davis. Our staff are there to help you understand how to apply for financial aid. And in the case of active duty and retired military service members, we can assist you in applying for the GI Bill, allowing you to get most or all of your electrical education paid for.
We are now more committed than ever to getting each student the electrical education they need to have a successful career.
