Carhartt Love of Labor Grant Program
The Carhartt brand, based in Dearborn, MI, is launching its first-ever grant program to support organizations dedicated to training and placing workers in skilled trade jobs. The company’s ‘For the Love of Labor’ initiative aims to help fill this critical skill gap. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are approximately three million open skilled trade jobs in the U.S. by 2022. In response, the company is donating 100 percent of its online sales on Labor Day to eligible nonprofits.
This year, the program will award $175,000 to four community-based organizations. The grant recipients will be selected based on their work and community impact. The money raised from the sale of Carhartt workwear will be used to fund the organizations’ ongoing grants. The donations will be used to help build community-based skilled trades organizations.
