NGA AT WORK
Anonymous Industry Donor Bolsters NGA Foundation

Earlier this month, the National Glass Association announced the opening of MyGlassClass.com courses to the entire industry for free in May on a first-come, first-serve basis. This was done through a generous grant by the Friese Foundation to help glass and glazing companies through the COVID-19 crisis.

The overwhelming response meant a temporary halt to enrollments and the start of a wait list. “Thanks to a generous, anonymous industry donor, we were able to reopen the wait list for a time so that many more workers could take advantage of this incredible offer,” says NGA President & CEO Nicole Harris. “It’s just this kind of spirited action that we hoped for following the Friese Foundation’s initiative to support our industry through education. The fact that it came in a time of even greater need is truly wonderful.”

More information about the National Glass Association Foundation, a 501(c)3 charitable organization, can be found on GuideStar. Please also visit MyGlassClass.com.
