JA receives Generous Grant from Diane and Bruce Halle Foundation

Posted in: Partners, Support

At Junior Achievement, we are committed to providing our programs to as many students in Arizona as possible, particularly low-income.

And, thanks to a generous contribution from the Diane and Bruce Halle Foundation, nearly 3,000 girls from low-income families will receive our life-changing skills to help them succeed in work and life. Through their involvement with JA’s programs this year, they will have the foundational skills needed to manage money and succeed in their future careers.

The need for these young women is critical because many of their parents do not have the education or background to teach their kids these financial and workreadiness skills at home. And, research shows in many cases, parents are more uncomfortable talking about money with their daughters than sons.

With the support from the Diane and Bruce Halle Foundation, we are working to address this critical gap and equip these young women with the skills to achieve their future potential.

Thank you to the Diane and Bruce Halle Foundation for helping us to provide these students with our financial literacy, workforce readiness, and entrepreneurship education. Their futures are brighter because of your investment in them.
