With an eye toward encouraging individual professional growth, THE YES FOUNDATION has announced the availability of several cash grants to be awarded in 2017 to individuals looking for continuing education.
Applications are being accepted and reviewed now.
The foundation is a nonprofit “give back” group, funded by people who have already had a bit of success themselves.
Ideal applicants could be persons currently employed and already active in business, or individuals just starting out and looking for career opportunities. In addition, the foundation encourages active industry folks to nominate a deserving individual. An application form and a separate nomination form can both be found on the foundation’s website, http://www.the-yes-foundation.org./
THE YES FOUNDATION is still relatively new but has already generated an impressive cash balance.
“We have cash to give away,” says YES FOUNDATION board member Steve Capper. “If a person is motivated to learn and grow in the graphics field or in the awards business, we may be able to help. If you know someone deserving, please go to the foundation’s website and let us know.”
Capper says the website is easy to navigate for those wanting to make an application, make a nomination or make tax-deductible donations.
The foundation plans to give away several thousand dollars this year and in future years to deserving recipients. Grant proceeds may be used for business-related education, including college-level classes or industry-specific training or seminars.
