Let's Close the Trade Skill Gap
With an estimated 10 million global manufacturing jobs currently unfilled, the trade skill gap is an urgent challenge. That’s why we’re committing up to $25 million in grant money over five years to nonprofits – helping fund important vocational skills training and reskilling programs in construction and manufacturing. Together we can close the trade skill gap and help people build what matters.
Apply for a Makers Grant by October 25
Nonprofits involved in vocational skills training can apply between October 1 - 25. Submissions will be evaluated based on multiple criteria, including but not limited to number of people served, outcomes projected, sustainable impact, depth of programs, diversity and more.
