Briggs & Stratton donates 2,000 engines to 50 EETC member schools


Is your school a member of the EETC? If not, you may want to reconsider.

Among the many perks, manufacturers often ask us to facilitate generous donations to our nearly member schools.

Briggs & Stratton recently contacted us about facilitating the donation of 2,000 engines. We notified our nearly 200 member schools about the desired engine donation and encouraged them to apply for it through our website at The engines were then donated to 50 EETC member schools, including Upper Bucks County Technical School in Perkasie, Pa. (see photo).

In a letter to EETC Executive Director Erik Sides, William Young, small engine technology instructor at Upper Bucks County Technical School, wrote: "I want to thank you for getting the word out about the Briggs snowblower engines. We were lucky enough to receive a pallet of 40 engines. They will go to good use helping my students prepare for the future."


To join the EETC, go to, click on the "Register" tab, select your member type, and complete the subsequent steps. As you will see, the annual fees for high schools are only $100 and colleges or universities is $250, students may join for free, and anyone can become a member.

Incidentally, if your school was fortunate enough to be one of the 50 lucky recipients of Briggs & Stratton’s generous engine donation, please post a photo of your students with the engines to Facebook and tag both Briggs & Stratton and the EETC. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

A big "shout out " to Briggs and Stratton's engine donation to our schools that still offer hands-on small engine education ! We were totally surprise that we were able to receive such a great award ! These engine will definitely keep the program going at Hampshire High School ! Thank you again for the support EETC and Briggs and Stratton !
