Walmart Offers $10 Million in Job Training for Vets
Walmart Foundation to make $10 million available in new program geared towards helping America's veterans re-enter the workforce.

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
