Community members looking to enter a job training program, start a business or obtain a degree can obtain some financial assistance from the Fouché Foundation Fund, which is managed by the Richmond Community Foundation.
The foundation is granting awards ranging from $250 to $1000 that will be given directly to the training school, program, college, or 501(C)(3) business.
Grants are awarded during the last phase of training, schooling, or after one year in business. They are based on a resident’s “application demonstrating their determination to fulfill their vocational vision,” officials said.
The application deadline is Oct. 2 no later than 5 p.m. Application and guidelines can be accessed here.
