For the first time, the Pennsylvania Veterans Foundation (PVF) “… is seeking to assist approximately ten Pennsylvania nonprofit organizations that help military veteran with grants ranging from $5,000 to $10,000. Specifically, the PVF is asking County Directors of Veterans Affairs and other community leaders to identify noteworthy organizations that are doing tremendous work yet need some extra resources to expand their effectiveness and reach,” states Mike Gould, the foundation’s Chairman of the Board.
The organizations especially sought are those that operate using volunteers only, have a 501(c)3 status — or are in the process of gaining that status — and operate on budgets or total assets of under $50,000. In addition, although the foundation will accept requests for consideration from organizations dealing with other aspects of veterans support, it wants to focus this year on mental health care, employment and housing assistance.
If your organization is interested, please contact Mike Gould at firstname.lastname@example.org, providing a mailing address and the phone number of the person-in-charge. A visit to the organization and/or participating in their activities might be involved to obtain the needed information.
