During this ceremony, a $250,000 check was donated to the Workshops for Warriors by the Gene Haas Foundation.

Workshops for Warriors recently received a $250,000 grant from the Gene Haas Foundation to help continue its work. These funds will offset training costs and provide Workshops for Warriors' machining students with stipends while they work to complete their certification programs.

The Gene Haas Foundation was created in 1999 by Gene Haas, founder of machine tool builder Haas Automation.

In addition to its work with Workshops for Warriors, the foundation provides scholarships for students entering technical training programs. It also supports youth programs designed to motivate young people to consider careers in manufacturing and machining.

Workshops for Warriors is a nonprofit school designed to help veterans transition into civilian life through advanced manufacturing training, certification and job placement.
