What is the National Fund?

A new strategic framework that will guide National Fund efforts over the next five years.



National Fund Partners on UpSkill America

The National Fund has joined with seven other national partners in launching UpSkill America. The goals of UpSkill America are closely aligned with why the National Fund was first organized in 2007. In the coming months, the National Fund, in collaboration with UpSkill America, is hoping to be a catalyst for change for these workers through its three-part mission:

    • Recognizing leading employers that have developed promising approaches to provide training and career development for their workers
    • Encouraging the widespread adoption of business practices that foster expanded economic opportunity for hard-working Americans
    • Fostering education and workforce development programs to support businesses and a better job and career 

The National Fund and its more than 30 partner communities are deeply committed to industry leadership within workforce development and frontline worker investment and appreciates the opportunity to promote smart investments in frontline workers in order increase access to family-supporting careers for millions of Americans while also helping employers find the talent they need to be successful and competitive.
