SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 18, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Today the SkillUp Coalition, which provides displaced workers with opportunities to gain new skills and secure
in-demand jobs, announced the launch of a fund with the goal of benefitting 30,000 workers displaced by COVID-19. Known as the SkillUp Together Fund, money
raised immediately goes to recipients in the form of grants that cover the cost of training, equipment, or special support services. The Fund will target those most
impacted by the pandemic who are making under $40,000 a year and have less than a bachelor’s degree. SkillUp aims to raise $30 million in total and disperse the
funds fully within 12 to 18 months.
