Stamford, CT and Newport Beach, CA, November 6, 2019–Veterans Day is observed by Americans each year on November 11, the day that is dedicated to honoring and extending our gratitude to the millions of men and women who have served within the US military. At Mischler Financial Group (“Mischler”) , the financial industry’s oldest investment bank and institutional brokerage owned and operated by service-disabled veterans, Veterans Day is observed every day, and each November Mischler pledges a percentage of the entire month’s profits to carefully-vetted charitable organizations that support veterans and their families, as well as to philanthropies that are focused on enabling students in under-resourced urban areas with tools they can use to positively impact the communities they live in.
To honor Veterans Day Month 2019, Mischler has therefore made this year’s financial pledge to both The Stephen A. Cohen Military Family Clinic at Veterans Village in San Diego, CA and to buildOn.org.
Dean Chamberlain, CEO of Mischler, stated “As we celebrate our 25th anniversary, the Mischler ethos remains devoted to giving back by paying forward. The Cohen Veteran Network local healthcare venues such as the one in San Diego, and buildOn.org are exactly the type of initiatives that align with our view towards underwriting long-term investments that will deliver out-sized returns for those having the greatest needs. We thank our clients and customers for affording us this opportunity to help others.”
