Gene Haas Foundation Provides Workshops for Warriors $250,000 Grant

The donation will help offset training and provide Workshops for Warriors machining students with stipends while they work to complete their certifications.

Workshops for Warriors, a nonprofit school assisting veterans who are transitioning into civilian life through advanced manufacturing training, certification and job placement, received a $250,000 grant from the Gene Haas Foundation.

The donation will help offset training and provide Workshops for Warriors machining students with stipends while they work to complete their certifications.

“This grant is crucial in helping give our veterans an opportunity to complete all coursework,” says Hernàn Luis y Prado, founder of Workshop for Warriors. “The Gene Haas Foundation is one of the most respected and supportive organizations when it comes to philanthropy and helping organizations meet their goals.”

The Gene Haas Foundation provides scholarships for students entering technical training programs as well as supports youth programs to help motivate young people to get interested in manufacturing and machining.

“We’re very appreciative for their generosity," says Luis y Prado. "They’ve supported Workshops for Warriors for many years, and they’re continuously looking to help veterans and wounded warriors."
