This fund was established in 2005 by a retired Carpenter Technology employee, Dan Kubacki. Mr. Kubacki worked at Carpenter Technology for 41 years before retiring in 1981. He established the fund to benefit the children of employees of Carpenter Technology, a company that meant a lot to him throughout his life, and to provide a vehicle for other retired employees to add to this fund.
