This message is to introduce the Washington Diversity and Veterans Foundation and invite your organization to become a partner in the fulfillment of our Veterans’ Objective Mission Program.
The Washington Diversity and Veterans Foundation (WDVF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which offers entrepreneurial resources, education, contacts, and tools to veterans and other individuals in the community to help them start or grow their own businesses.
Every year, hundreds of thousands of veterans leave the military to begin careers in the civilian community. Many have the skills, training, and experience to start their own businesses, but lack the entrepreneurial expertise to make those businesses successful. WDVF is committed to helping these veterans utilize their skills to build companies which achieve growth and prosperity and make positive contributions to the community.
In January, 2016, the Veterans’ Objective Mission Program starts, a two-year course designed to help veterans returned to civilian life and in-service military separating within a year to establish and develop businesses. This will increase the number of veteran owned businesses in our communities, fueling economic diversification, creating jobs, and developing sustainable entrepreneurial resources.
This program will serve 90 veterans and in-service members separating within a year. It is free to participants, an important component, since most veterans seeking to start businesses don’t have the financial resources to attend fee-based educational institutions while they start their companies.
We are taking applications now. Selected participants will have to pass a panel interview to start the program in January 2016. For more information, please visit: http://www.wdvfoundation.org
WDVF is seeking sponsors, and/or partnership to support this program. We hope we can count on you to help support our cause. Please find attached a copy of the program’s brochure for your information.
