SAVE THE DATE: 2016's North Texas Giving Day will be September 22, 2016. Last year's event was a tremendous success for Skill QUEST, raising thousands of dollars we've used to match the $650,000.00 from the State's ACE Fund that was awarded to Skill QUEST, subject to our receiving equal matching funding from local and regional funders. We are actively visiting with all our past and present students, talking with every one of our generous donors who have supported us through the years, and networking throughout the community with individuals, private businesses, city and county officials, and others to grow our funding base, not only to match the state's funds, but further to insure low income working adults throughout north Texas will always have a clear pathway out of poverty and into great jobs that pay a family living wage plus provide good benefits and a rewarding career path. Won't you help us help our neighbors? We encourage you to take advantage of the additional funding North Texas Giving Day makes available through the generous multiplication added by Community Foundation of Texas and other area donors.
