The Brad Feld Matching Donation Program

Help us raise $50,000 to reskill justice-involved folks across America!

Justice Reskill is ramping up to launch our nationwide campaign to offer free online skills training and career development for justice-involved folks. To help us cover our upfront operating costs, entrepreneur, author, and venture capitalist Brad Feld has offered to sponsor a matching program. Brad will match every dollar that we raise up to $25,000!

This is where we need your help. Tax-deductible donations can be made through our fiscal sponsor, the Open Collective Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization. Simply click on the link below to donate. Remember, thanks to Brad, every dollar you donate will be doubled.

To compete in tomorrow’s job market, technical skills—like software programming, data analysis, and quality assurance—will be essential. Compared to their peers, justice-involved people tend to have fewer opportunities to reskill in these areas, leading them to fall even further behind financially and risk consequences such as recidivism. Even those who emerge from the justice system with the necessary skills are often stigmatized and excluded from future training or job opportunities. 

Justice Reskill is helping justice-involved folks to meet these challenges, but we continue to rely on the generosity of our partners and donors like Brad to achieve our vision of building a path of true economic stability for this often overlooked community. 

We are grateful for Brad’s continued support. Earlier this year, he tapped into his network to help us acquire laptops for our first cohort of 20 justice-involved pilot program participants starting this summer.
