Exciting News: Palmer Scholars Receives $40,000 Grant from Boeing's Employees Community Fund - Puget Sound Chapter!

We are thrilled to announce that Boeing's Employees Community Fund (ECF) Puget Sound Chapter Grantmaking Committee has approved Palmer Scholars' grant request for $40,000.00! This generous grant will be used to support transportation needs for our young adults of color, ensuring they have access to critical opportunities and experiences.

Our heartfelt thanks go out to Boeing for making this possible. Your commitment to community support is truly inspiring. #BoeingInspires

The funding will be used to purchase a second van, which is vital for transporting our Scholars to field trips, try-a-trades, and various events. These experiences are essential for their career development and personal growth. For instance, our Scholars visit active construction sites and engage with local apprenticeships like the Ironworkers and Laborers. These hands-on experiences are invaluable in helping them explore and pursue careers in the trades.

In addition to career-focused trips, our vans are used for other enriching activities. Recently, our Scholars volunteered at Dozer Days and attended the Seahawks Mental Health Panel, an event dedicated to promoting mental wellness and resilience.

This grant from the ECF Puget Sound Chapter is more than just a financial boost; it is a testament to the power of community support and collaboration. With Boeing's backing, we can continue to empower our Scholars, providing them with the tools and opportunities they need to succeed.

Thank you, Boeing, for your unwavering support and for believing in the potential of our young adults. Together, we are making a difference.

Stay tuned for more updates as we continue to make strides in supporting our Scholars' journeys. Your support and enthusiasm mean the world to us!
