ANEW’s 40th Anniversary comes during a challenging time for everyone, but especially for those we serve. The pandemic has disproportionally affected women and BIPOC, many who have lost their jobs and their savings. With record unemployment rates, especially in low wage industries, ANEW’s training is vital. Exposure to and training for family wage careers in construction is vital right now as we face a projected workforce shortage.

We need your investment now to help raise $250,000 to ensure ANEW can continue to deliver our proven pre-apprenticeship training programs in 2021. We ask that you please give as you would at a live event. Every donation counts – no matter the amount! We will use your donation wisely to provide career exploration, support services and training opportunities for those struck hardest by COVID-19. Help us build the people who will build our communities.

What impact will YOUR donation make?
$150 – Buys an apprentice a pair of work boots
$200 – Allows one of our clients to earn their GED
$300 – Covers the transportation for one student to get to our pre-apprenticeship class every day for 11 weeks
$1,500 – Pays for a pre-apprentice’s industry certification course
$3,000 – Covers all of the supplies and materials for a whole pre-apprenticeship class
$5,000- Sponsor one student going through our pre-apprenticeship class
$45,000 – Sponsor an entire 4-week Construction Boot Camp
$90,000 – Sponsor an entire 11-week pre-apprenticeship class

Countdown to reach our goal!
