< Strive For Change Foundation – Funding East Bay Job-Training Programs for Low-Income Workers



Supporting job-training programs in the East Bay for low-income workers with barriers to employment

About Us

Strive for Change Foundation was founded in 2006 to help overcome poverty in Alameda and Contra Costa counties.  We support innovative job-training programs that help ambitious low-income individuals get the job and life-skills training they need to improve their career opportunities, earn a sustainable income and become financially self- sufficient.

How Strive For Change Foundation Helps

We support organizations that help low-income workers acquire:

♦ Job skills training

♦ Career development support

♦ Entrepreneurship and small business creation

♦  Financial literacy and asset-building knowledge

Low-Income Workers Face These Challenges


♦ Lack of job skills

♦ Poor access to job-training programs that support improved earning potential

♦ Language, social and/or personal financial skill deficits/barriers

♦ Bay Area’s high cost of living, with expensive transportation, food, housing and health care

♦ Low minimum-wage levels

President’s Letter for 2020

Good-bye 2019, Hello 2020!

As we step into 2020, I look back on Strive for Change Foundation’s past year with gratitude for the many good things that came together to build hope and create a positive career future for the hundreds of men and women our organization helped in 2019. And I have a sense of optimism for the new year.
