Why Give to Genesis Center?

You have heard many times: “Your gift makes a difference!”  But in our case, it's more true than you can imagine.


Most of our revenue comes from grants. They are highly restricted, and they leave us no margin to avail ourselves of opportunities or deal with unexpected challenges. Philanthropic support such as yours enables us to have some flexibility to take action when we need to. Your gift gives us flexibility to take initiatives and push the envelope to enable our students from over 40 countries to learn not only how to speak English, but also to learn what it takes to make it in the United States of America.

Your gift is vital to our continued stability and success.

In July 2014, Vice President Joseph Biden gave a report to President Obama on Workforce Development programs around the country that “are really working.” Genesis Center was chosen to be a part of his report, one of just 30 nonprofit organizations nationwide.  This is a huge event for us.  You can read the report on The White House website:  www.whitehouse.gov/ready-to-work. Genesis Center is “Where the will to achieve meets the skill to succeed.”

Our students are aware of the importance of your support, and I speak for them as well as our teachers when I say: Thank you for your support!

In accordance with section 170(f)(8) of the Internal Revenue Code, your cash contribution is fully tax deductible.
