YorIt's 2014 Social Venture Challenge grant has been awarded to Working Class, which wants to create space for large-scale artisans and designers in downtown York.
The grant totaled $20,000, according to a news release.
YorIt is an initiative of the York County Community Foundation that is aimed at developing leaders of philanthropy who invest their combined giving in social venture projects to foster growth and progress in York County.
Working Class is creating a community of artists and creatives focused on industrial design innovation, fabrication and education, while also striving to be a self-sustaining arts-based organization. Members have access to equipment, tools and workspace, as well as education, training, retail products and commission-based fabrication.
Working Class is located at 15 E. Philadelphia St. in downtown York. Its application video for the YorIt grant is here.
