We are deeply grateful to Bank of America for their recent $50,000 grant for our West Philadelphia Skills Initiative. Last year, 95% of Skills Initiative graduates connected to employment with an average $19.20 per hour starting wage, and the program has facilitated the payment of $75 million in wages through employers over the last decade. The grant is part of Bank of America's philanthropic giving efforts in local communities to spur lasting impact.

Awardees were selected for their commitment to address basic needs and providing workforce development for individuals and families. This latest funding pushes Bank of America's total investment in our Skills Initiative program to over $650,000 since 2013.
