NEW YORK, November, 11, 2014 /3BL Media/ - Today, on Veterans Day, The PwC Charitable Foundation, Inc. has announced a $5 million donation for a series of grants to support US veterans and their families over the next five years. The grants will provide scholarships for education as well as support with the transition to the workforce. This announcement coincides with PwC US being named as a Top 100 Military Friendly Employer® for the fifth year in a row.

“Our Charitable Foundation is focused on making investments that can have a profound effect on underserved populations, including those who have fought for our country—veterans,” said Shannon Schuyler, principal, corporate responsibility leader, PwC and president, PwC Charitable Foundation, Inc. “By supporting those who have sacrificed for us today, we are helping build a better workforce, community and country tomorrow.”

The firm is also launching a new Changing Lives video series which highlights its collaboration and impact with various non-profit organizations.   One video features the powerful story of Ryan, a veteran who found a new calling by volunteering through Team Rubicon, a non-profit that repurposes the skills and experiences of military veterans with first responders to rapidly deploy emergency response teams. The PwC Charitable Foundation, Inc. has provided $800,000 to support Team Rubicon. Watch Ryan's story here.

“Teamwork, leadership, unique perspectives—these are all qualities inherent to veterans, and talents we value in our people,” said Mike Donoghue, co-leader of PwC’s Veterans Network. “We are honored to support veterans and their families as they re-enter the workforce .”

This commitment builds upon PwC US’ overall commitment to supporting veterans.  The firm has an active Veterans Network, collaborates with the Department of Defense's Military Spouse Employment Partnership and has presented best practices on veterans programs to Joining Forces at the White House. These programs, and more, have contributed to PwC US receiving the Seven Seals Award and the Above and Beyond Award from the Employer Support of the Guard & Reserve (ESGR).
