How We Work

  • The Skilled Labor Fund is part of the National Housing Endowment, a 501(c)(3) Foundation. Affiliation with the National Housing Endowment allows 98.5% of all funds raised to be spent on the Foundation's mission.
  • The operating committee makes decisions on how and where the collected funds will be spent. Donors' input is welcomed and expected.
  • The fund is set up as a restrictive fund, meaning that the funds do not need to be endowed and can be distributed as needed.
  • The initial fundraising goal is $5,000,000+.
