The Foundation for Second Chances Announces Benefits from G-Unity Grant

gunity-logo.jpgThe Foundation for Second Chances, a non-profit organization that that seeks to improve the quality of the education provided to today’s youth, recently announced a series of improvements it was able to implement with funds from a G-Unity Foundation grant. In 2006, 50 Cent’s charitable organization delivered a $10,000 grant to the FFSC as part of its mission to help non-profits that focus on improving the quality of life for low-income and underserved communities. The FFSC today reports that the grant has allowed them to expand the after school programs they offer, hire new staff and eventually double the number of students they could reach. “We are extremely grateful to the G-Unity Foundation for this critical grant, which has enabled us to put down organizational roots and to offer critical life skills to fifteen additional youth in our community,” stated Melissa Wyatt, FFSC Executive Director. “We have learned a great deal through our relationship with the foundation and look forward to continuing our partnership to improve quality of life in our neighborhoods.”

    That’s good that they’re trying to do *something*, but $10,000.00? That’s only enough to hire someone with an above average level of talent and skill for about 3 months out of the year. 50 only is probably walking around with ten times that much around his wrists.

    Haters &Beggars:
    - give me 10,000 if you can’t stand G-unity giving. If you feel it isn’t worth ish- I’ll even borrow it from ya and return it with better interest than the bank gives ya-
    After all- 10G’s ain’t ish, right? Just like tippin the waiter right? Oh, you wouldn’t even do that…
    Poor people don’t always know that smart orgs. have funds from which they draw yearly budgets from based on investment.. That $$ can boost a fund, not necessarily directly hire people-it all depends on the organization.
