The Community Services Agency’s Building Futures program landed another grant last week when the Community Foundation for the National Capital Region announced grant awards to 58 nonprofit organizations for the first round of grant-making from the City Fund. CSA’s Building Futures program was awarded $70,000 by the $15 million City Fund, a District-funded effort to support effective nonprofits that provide critical programs and services across the city. “Our Building Futures program is well-respected and has been turning out ready-to-work graduates for seven years, with 80% landing apprenticeships and jobs in the construction industry and with the utilities,” said CSA Executive Director Kathleen McKirchy.  “Our graduates turn their lives around learning the trades and becoming economically self-sufficient.  We are gratified to be among the 58 agencies funded – out of more than 300 agencies applying -- and look forward to providing more DC residents with paths out of poverty.” CSA also recently was awarded general operating support funding from the DC Sharing Fund, another managed program of the Community Foundation, National Capital Region.
