Nov. 12, 2010 - PRLog -- The Walmart Foundation is starting a new $10 million giving program aimed at nonprofits helping veterans find employment, especially returning servicemen and women, according to a story posted today by Federal & Foundation Assistance Monitor. The Monitor is a continually updated grants database and news service focused exclusively on funding for community programs, published since 1986.
   The Foundation's Phillip Keene tells Federal & Foundation Assistance Monitor details are still being worked out for how the dollars will be allocated. He says nonprofits focusing on employment and training and providing other supportive services for the population should apply through the traditional programs and play up these components in their application.
   The foundation, which traditionally gives priority to veterans programs, now has a dedicated pot of funding that will allow it to further support these nonprofits, Keene says.  
   As one of the nation's largest private employers of veterans, Walmart launched the initiative to address the serious unemployment situation involving veterans and to create more job opportunities for those who have fought for and served the country.
   Keene offers additional insights and inside advice in this week's Federal and Foundation Assistance Monitor, available at no cost to grantseekers as a public service.  To read the full story simply register for access to the Monitor by visiting  or visit and enter code D092 for free access.

Select Federal & Foundation Assistance Monitor. You will receive log-on information and will have complete access to this and other new private and federal grant opportunities, with freshly updated advice and insights exclusive to the Monitor, which was recently endorsed by the Grant Professionals Association as an invaluable grantseeking resource.
