Forefront Capital Advisors and the Easter Seals Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services entered into a partnership last week, aimed at improving the lives of veterans as they transition back to their communities after finishing service.
Under the deal, the global financial services firm will invest $3 million to assist the Easter Seals Dixon Center in its efforts to help provide veterans and military families with the tools they need to live productive and successful lives in terms of employment, education and wellness. Easter Seals offers employment and job training programs, veteran caregiver training services, respite services for children in military families, community services, health and wellness programs and education services.
“We are proud to be Forefront Capital Advisors’ charity of choice,” Easter Seals Dixon Center Chairman David Sutherland said. “Like Forefront Capital, we recognize that veteran needs are evolving, not disappearing. This investment will enhance and grow our ongoing and extensive impact on the lives of veterans and their families.”
Over the years, Easter Seals Dixon Center has worked with more than 560 communities -- as well as thousands of organizations and individuals -- to provide resources and support for veterans and military families.
“Forefront’s mission is to make a significant difference in the lives of veterans and the military community, while simultaneously supporting our clients’ financial future,” Forefront Capital Advisors Founder and CEO Brad Reifler said. “Partnering with Easter Seals Dixon Center makes good business sense. We believe veterans and their families must have financial stability to succeed in their communities after a life of service.”
