One employer making a mark in the area of philanthropy for veterans is First Data Corporation. This global leader in payments technology recently announced a $7 million dollar seven-year commitment to the Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF) at Syracuse University.
This initiative touches on the company’s commitment to veterans in two ways: both as an employer of veterans, and as a provider of services to veteran-owned businesses. With a particular focus on veterans transitioning out of the military and back into civilian life, this grant will go toward education, research, training and job opportunities for veterans and their spouses pursuing business careers.
