UCD Receives Funding From Lincoln Financial Foundation

The West Philadelphia Skills Initiative (WPSI) | Lincoln Financial Foundation

We are pleased to share that we recently received a $20,000 grant from the Lincoln Financial Foundation to support the West Philadelphia Skills Initiative, our job training program that connects employers seeking talent with West Philadelphians seeking opportunity. Lincoln Financial Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Lincoln Financial Group, believes in empowering people to live greater lives, which advances culture and empowers greater positive change. Its grant is part of Lincoln Financial’s annual $10 million investment in its local communities’ youth education, economic and workforce development, human well-being and arts programs. The Skills Initiative is seeking to expand our local impact and this generous grant builds on our momentum, helping us serve more jobseekers and employer partners while building economic opportunity here in West Philadelphia.
