Guided by the belief that learning is continuous, 203 Foundation enables education opportunities in the medical, scientific, and technology fields for students in need, specifically adult learners re-entering the workforce or changing careers.
Through our fundraising efforts we provide substantial contributions to various scholarship funds that align with our mission to help adults learn new skills or start new careers.
Organizations that educate, train, and prepare adults for their careers require substantial funding, especially when building top-notch programs. We provide funding to these organizations to support their continued missions.
