“Friends and Partners of Capital IDEA,

 

I trust that you all had a wonderful holiday season.  As we all return to work from our breaks, we realize there are some amongst us who are struggling to make ends meet and that those numbers are expected to grow in the foreseeable future.  The promise of a new administration provides hope, but we all can agree that education is the path to a brighter future.  Capital IDEA sponsors educational opportunities that lead to life-long financial stability.  We fund participants’ education, including tuition and books. Capital IDEA also offers assistance with childcare, emergency expenses, and helps participants find employment with good salaries, benefits and opportunities for career growth once they graduate.
