Your Support Helps Us Build a Better Workforce
Education and workforce training are critical to a globally competitive workforce. We continue to provide a high quality workforce development system by advancing innovative solutions to workforce challenges and seeking alternative ways to better align resources. It is with this goal in mind that we strive to create a more effective and efﬁcient workforce system designed to withstand economic and systemic change.
Public Job Training Funds Do Not Meet All of the Ever Changing Needs of Our Community.
The WorkPlace looks for private investment in the state’s workforce, and finds ways to leverage these private contributions and grants. Private contributions enable us to serve more people and to create innovative new programs to meet changing needs.
Contributions can be made to support these programs or other areas of speciﬁc interest. The WorkPlace is a 501(c)3 non-proﬁt organization and all donations are 100% tax-deductible.
5 Excellent Reasons to Support The WorkPlace
Your donation improves the quality of education and work readiness each jobseeker receives
Your financial support supplements public job training funds and helps us meet the ever growing demand
Your donation helps economically disadvantaged individuals find and maintain employment
Contributions are tax-deductible. A donation helps The WorkPlace achieve its mission and an individual’s total tax liability can be reduced with a contribution
Every bit helps. Corporations and foundations often look to the number of donors in choosing the level at which they will support The WorkPlace
