Veterans in Philanthropy

IVMF partnered with the Robert R. McCormick Foundation in an effort to gain deeper insight into to the characteristics of veterans who are employed in the philanthropic sector (i.e., foundations and grantmaking organizations) and to better understand their occupational roles and potential pathways to employment for prospective veterans.

Key Highlights

The IVMF conducted a survey and follow-up focus group with select veterans employed in the philanthropic sector in fall 2015. The data was used to inform philanthropic leaders on veterans working in this sector and initiatives they might take to create or strengthen opportunities for veterans to pursue careers in philanthropy.
