The George E. Prokos Veteran Education Fund
In 2016, United States Vets, Inc. initiated a fund to assist military veterans pursuing higher education. Five thousand dollars will be granted to one veteran each year towards their educational pursuits.
Why should you get involved?
The veterans put their lives on line to protect our freedoms everyday. Offering a helping hand is the least we could do in return.
Veterans, with their spectacular skills and tools, contribute so much to our society. Hard-working, skilled and educated veterans are valuable resources to our Toledo communities. Your contribution will empower these brave men and women to enhance their quality of life leading to healthy and successful communities in Toledo.
Organizations, businesses and individuals are welcome to participate in our many functions to help assist vets and keep our resource and referral page alive, offering outstanding resources and referrals to all veterans.
How does the fund work?
Your donation to the George E. Prokos Veteran Education Fund supports collegiate veterans. Our first success story was Victoria Thompson, recipient of the 2016 Veterans Education Fund. Here is how this fund helped this special veteran achieve her mission.
“Thanks to your organization, the grant covered my last semester and I was able to finish without taking out a student loan.”
This year’s campaign is full swing with fundraisers and events. Our goal is to collect $5000 through generous donations from the community to make a veteran’s collegiate dream possible. We can’t do this without you!
If you are veteran enrolled/accepted in an accredited college, please be sure to take advantage of this marvelous program.
No other veteran organization in the Toledo area has this generous program to help reach your education goals and aspirations.
Guidelines for the 2017 award will be announced and open for submissions on September 1; deadline for submission is December 1, 2017. The winner will be announced on December 4 and awarded the $5,000 at the annual Christmas dinner.
