The Greater Michigan Construction Academy receives grant from MACF

July, 2020 – The staff and board of directors of the Greater Michigan Construction Academy (GMCA) are pleased to announce they have received a $15,000.00 grant from the Midland Area Community Foundation (MACF) to assist with operational expenses, specifically rent, due to the COVID-19 crisis.

“We appreciate the collaboration of the Midland Area Community Foundation and the assistance they are providing to organizations during this ongoing crisis. GMCA will use these funds for operational expenses as we are not able to host fundraising events and special programs, in addition to other activities that would bring in revenue,” said Stephanie Davis, president of GMCA.

Due to the unprecedented times of the COVID-19 pandemic and the impact it has had on the nonprofit community, the Midland Area Community Foundation adjusted a recent grant cycle to support the operation needs of organizations.

The Midland Area Community Foundation provides philanthropic leadership to strengthen our community by fostering collaboration and giving today and in the future.

The Greater Michigan Construction Academy is a 501c3 non-profit organization, a nationally certified training program using the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) curriculum making the training portable nationwide for students completing modules.   The curriculum is recognized by the Department of Labor’s Bureau of Apprenticeship Training.

GMCA’s Mission is to train and develop a highly skilled, safe workforce and promote construction trades as a career choice.
