Grant Received for Work with Purpose

Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services is honored to announce a $348,000 grant from a partner foundation. This investment will be used to assist in the growth of our flagship project working with organizations to assist transitioning service members, veterans, and their families to achieve economic empowerment.

Our partnership supports service members before and after they exit the military and provides a clear path for increased quality of life and stability. As we begin our seventh year of working together, the foundation’s investment in Dixon Center has created growth with multiple independent partner organizations.

Working together our collaborators are providing training resulting in credentialing, commercial driver licenses and certifications leading to meaningful employment in the transportation industry and building trades.

The foundation has been making investments across the country through grants that have a profound effect on underserved populations, including those who have fought for our country.

This grant will allow us to build on the success we’ve achieved in assisting thousands of veterans across the nations with the opportunity to work with purpose.
