Boeing announced on Monday that the company has made a $10.4 million charitable grants package to support 102 veterans nonprofit organizations across the globe. The package exceeds the three-year $25 million commitment the company made back in 2017.
Boeing's investment includes a $500,000 grant to the Military Spouse Corporate Career Network (MSCCN) and its sister nonprofit, Corporate America Supports You (CASY) to support the direct placement of 1,500 military spouses and 2,000 unemployed and underemployed National Guard, reservists and veterans over the next three years.
In addition, The Independence Fund will also receive a $250,000 grant from Boeing to support Operation RESILIENCY, a peer mentorship program that provides mental health and well-being services for combat veterans.
"On Veterans Day and every day, Boeing is committed to supporting military members, veterans and their families," said Boeing President and CEO Dennis Muilenburg. "Our support of veterans and military personnel goes beyond Boeing products and services and includes investing in their transition to civilian life and engaging with their families.”
Since 2017, Boeing has donated $27.4 million in support of veterans programs. The full list of Boeing's veterans grant partners can be found right here.
