The Tidewell Foundation recently announced it received a $100,000 grant from Bank of America to support Tidewell Hospice’s home health aide career development program. The funding will allow Tidewell Hospice to create and implement a training program that will provide a solid career path for underemployed and unemployed individuals. Tidewell Hospice provides paid training and a career ladder supporting participants in moving from home health aide, to CNA, LPN, RN and more.
Bank of America has provided $210,000 in funding to four Sarasota-Manatee organizations, including the Tidewell Foundation, to help advance racial equity and economic opportunity in the region this quarter. As part of the bank’s broader efforts to support economic mobility, it has granted a total of $410,000 to 19 local nonprofits this year.
