Sadly, many working families must choose between their highest ambitions and their greatest bill. With the cost of housing at almost 50 percent (and rising) of the average American’s paycheck, funds that foster housing stability and support efforts to promote income equity can change lives for generations to come.
The monetary support we provide creates a pathway to long-term housing affordability. We recognize that the global economy is changing and the need for education and training to qualify for future jobs and higher positions is more crucial than it ever has been before.
Your tax-deductible donation to the WORKFORCESTRONG Rental Assistance Housing Fund will go toward supporting an at-risk working family or individual with rental assistance as they advance their education and training. Further, because many workforce families and individuals will be slow to recover from wages lost during the COVID-19 pandemic, our scholarship fund is designed to support our award recipients far beyond a one time stipend.
We ask that you please consider at least a $20 donation; however, any amount would be a catalyst to changing the lives of many frontline workers, recent graduates, service, and workforce professionals. We also ask that you share the opportunity to support our fundraising campaign with 20 of your friends, colleagues, and family members that might be willing to join you in supporting our cause.
Join the movement and support the Fund that supports the backbone of our community: our workforce.
