Project Overview

We have several grants and funding we have identified that we qualify for, however, we lack the experience and expertise in completing one properly. Assistance is needed to help secure grants and funding for Suiting 101 so we can bring our mission and vision to pass.The Suiting 101 project will work with 11th & 12th grade underprivileged males with an emphasis on dressing for success and presentations. Students will attend workshops on networking with community mentors, how to dress in business attire – business attire vs casual attire, how to purchase a suit, how to tie a necktie, and business dinner etiquette. Upon completion of the program, each student will receive a new business suit and ensemble- i.e., suit, shirt, necktie, sox, belt, and shoes. Additionally, Suiting 101 works with prison and drug reform by hosting an annual Gentle Used Suit Drive in April and distributes suits to inmates being released from prison and drug programs. Suiting 101 has donated over 733 suits to agencies. Suiting 101 is a unique nonprofit in that there is no other agency teaching disadvantaged 12th grade males how to dress for success, giving young men a brand-new business suit and teaching them how to make a presentation. We have identified appropriate grants and funding for which to apply for Suiting 101 and just need assistance to help complete the applications properly. We have completed a few unsuccessful applications for grants so far.

We are in the process of setting up our website, so it is currently inactive.
