Funding Opportunities

Adult Life Training needs funding in the following areas. Adult Life Training, Inc. is a recognized tax exempt IRC Section 501(c)(3) Public Charity. All cash donations to Adult Life Training, Inc. are tax deductible under IRC Section 170. http://alt-fw.org/tax-info/determination-letter-short.pdf. Our mailing address is Adult Life Training, Inc., c/o Abundant Life, 3301 E Coliseum Blvd, Fort Wayne, IN 46805. There is also a PayPal button on each page — we loose 3% + 30 cents of each PayPal donation to PayPal fees.

While we can also use other resources, such as volunteers and supplies, cash funding is needed for the following:

Coffee Maker & Coffee Fund

Coffee and associated augmentations are available daily in the lab for those who visit. The Nash family has been kind enough to lend to us their Bunn Pour-O-Matic coffee maker, but it has aged and finally sprung a leak. Soon it will need to be replaced with a new commercial type coffee maker (the $30 residential type makers would not work well here). Coffee, creamer, milk, sugar, honey, and plasticware for stirring are used up daily and must be replaced. Each week one can of coffee is needed with one gallon of whole milk. A bag of sugar lasts about two weeks. A box of plastic spoons lasts a week or two, a box of Bunn coffee filters lasts a month or two. A replacement Bunn coffee maker would be on the order of $300. Consumables cost about $12 per week. If you would like to help with any of these items, please use the PayPal button at top left of this page or mail your check or money order to Adult Life Training, Inc., c/o ALC, 3301 Coliseum Blvd, RM 136, Fort Wayne, IN 46805.

Coin_of_MaximianFinancial Peace University Scholarships

Generational Social dependency is more a problem of thinking than opportunity: people miss opportunities, or ruin them, because of destructive personal choices. Part of our training program is teaching social dependents to take personal responsibility for their own well being and showing them how. Each FPU “Membership Kit” costs $102 plus shipping.

First Paid Staff

Our CEO has worked without pay for a decade. Several other reliable volunteers have worked for several years without pay but cannot be at the facility 40 hours a week as our CEO does unless they get some financial compensation. We need funding to cover fair wages 20 hours a week for a receptionist / office manager person, and if possible something to allow our CEO to be at least partially compensated for all his work each week. A donation for payroll expenses of $3,000 after company side taxes and ‘contributions’ would translate into pay of about $2,000. If you would like to help with this item, please use the PayPal button at top left of this page or mail your check or money order to Adult Life Training, Inc., c/o ALC, 3301 Coliseum Blvd, RM 136, Fort Wayne, IN 46805. PayPal does take a small percentage (3.5%) of donations that come to us through their system: checks allow us to receive your entire donation.
