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.
Announcing Our 2022 Makers Grant Recipients
For the second year of our Global Impact Challenge, we selected 91 out of an impressive field of 182 applicants to receive grant funding. Stay tuned to see the impact each will make in helping to skill and reskill over 200,000 makers throughout 2023.Download PR Toolkit
