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:

Operations

There are several significant immediate needs:

We lack printer paper – we print on the unused side of donated recycled paper most of the time however in some cases documents (such as resumes and business correspondence) need to be printed on a new sheet of paper: we are out of paper, there is no more, we need some now.

We are seeking games for our Friday evening LAN Party events that will be fun for GIRLS and women.  The guys are quite happy with their team shoot-em-up stuff but the gals want games about relationships. There are probably such games, but they cost money and we require 10 legal licenses (minimum) each.

Business English Literacy

We need donations of business publications relevant to employment, specifically high level business publications such as The Wallstreet Journal, The Economist, and Fortune Magazine. These teach our participants to communicate in more employable form and increase their knowledge of current events. Subscriptions to the local papers could also benefit but we are needing material that will teach adult / business level reading,  and of necessity local papers are normally designed for the 4th grade reading level.

Coffee Fund

Coffee supplies are available daily in the lab for those who visit. Coffee, creamer, milk, sugar, honey, and plasticware for stirring are used up daily and must be replaced. Consumables cost about $12 per week. If you would like to help with any of these items, please use the PayPal button at top 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.

Financial Peace University Scholarships

Generational Social dependency is more a problem of thinking than opportunity: even good people miss opportunities, or ruin them, because of destructive personal choices. Part of our training program is teaching people to take personal responsibility for their own well being and showing them how. Each FPU “Membership Kit” costs $102 plus shipping, each Passion Planner costs $30 plus shipping. . If you would like to help with this cost, please use the PayPal button at top 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.

First Paid Staff

Our CEO has worked without pay since 2003. 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 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.
