With major changes on the veterans landscape, how can philanthropy stay relevant, targeted and effective? The number of Post 9/11 veterans in civilian life is swelling even as the overall veteran population declines; public agencies that serve veterans are undergoing major changes in their leadership and service delivery; and the military itself is shifting to address new challenges.

Over the last decade, philanthropy has played a critical role in supporting veterans and it will no doubt continue to do so for years to come. But how can donors best use their resources to support this population? Join us to learn about new research, approaches and tools that can inform meaningful philanthropy for those who have served. 

Topics of discussion:

  • Making the Case for Veterans Philanthropy After 2014
  • What Can Donors Do to Help Vets Succeed in Higher Education?
  • Private Philanthropy’s Role in Helping Vets Launch Careers
  • Bringing the Cutting Edge of Social Innovation to Veterans Philanthropy
  • Searching for Better Outcomes in Veteran Disability Compensation
  • Improving Financial Capability for Today’s Veterans and Military Families
