Chip & Rebecca Cargas Fund
Helping people work from poverty to rewarding careers
This fund works with and provides grants to nonprofits that help local people work from poverty to rewarding careers. This is typically accomplished through education and support to develop the attitudes, skills, and resources necessary for an in-demand and rewarding career as an employee and/or business owner. Support can include providing inspiration and helping to overcome obstacles at any age and anywhere along the path from poverty to rewarding careers.*
The thinking that inspired this focus: It’s a great way to make our community more vibrant for everyone. Rewarding careers include the pride of doing valuable work and sharing in the success that is being created. Rewarding careers can support a family. People who successfully work from poverty to rewarding careers are an inspiration to others.
