The San Diego Foundation- WD-40 Advancing for Opportunity and Prosperity Grants Program Awards Interfaith $50,000

Thank you to The San Diego Foundation- WD-40 Advancing for Opportunity and Prosperity Grants Program for awarding $50,000 in support of Interfaith’s Employment & Economic Development and Supportive Services programs.  The WD-40 Company Foundation is a donor advised fund at The San Diego Foundation that seeks to improve self-sufficiency for low-income San Diegans through improved access and raised awareness for services, resources, training, and other supports that can increase their level of self-reliance.

Ailani, an Armed Forces veteran, is just one example of how support and resources can help individuals to realize their professional potential. “After graduation, you know, the sky’s the limit in where I would like to go,” said Ailani, who prior to finding Interfaith feared for his and his family’s future.  Interfaith is grateful for valuable partnerships such as this one, which allow us to provide a “hand up,” not a “hand out,” empowering and moving individuals towards sustainability and self-sufficiency.
