Credit Suisse has announced a $100,000 grant to myFutureNC to support its vital work of assisting 2 million North Carolinians in obtaining college degrees or high-quality credentials aligned with industry needs by 2030. The bank is one of the world’s leading financial services providers, and it has recently expanded its presence and job opportunities in Raleigh-Durham, NC.
“We are excited for this opportunity to support myFutureNC’s work to strengthen the ties between the education and employment sectors,” said Eric Eckholdt, Executive Director of the Credit Suisse Americas Foundation. “Credit Suisse believes that providing young people with the education and skills necessary for a strong career start offers the opportunity to live choice-filled, upwardly mobile lives. We appreciate myFutureNC’s work at the local level to ensure these opportunities are made accessible to all, while aligning with the needs of a modern workforce.”
This grant is part of Credit Suisse’s Future Skills programme, which seeks to support initiatives that help close educational and employment gaps for young people, particularly those from low-income families, as they enter adulthood. As the only statewide organisation focused on the entire education-to-workforce continuum, myFutureNC is well-positioned to make meaningful differences in the lives of young people with Credit Suisse’s support.
