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. The 2017 Recipient is Mr. Ridha Bensalem. Ridha was a U.S. Army Specialist, serving 2008-2012 in Iraq as a Translator Aide. He has already achieved Associate Degrees in Accounting, Human Resources and Business Management. He will continue his educational endeavors seeking a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management.
Ridha states, “I decided to continue my education after my military service ended honorable as a US Army Specialist. Going back to college to pursue an education and begin a new career was a challenging choice not only for me but also for my wife and children.”
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!
No other veteran organization in the Toledo area has this generous program to help reach your education goals and aspirations.
