Stamford, CT and Newport Beach, CA, November 6, 2020–Mischler Financial Group, Inc., the financial industry’s oldest diversity-certified investment bank owned and operated by military veterans announced today that the firm’s annual 2020 Veterans Day Month philanthropic pledge has been made to four distinctive groups, each of which play a crucial role in advancing the firm’s mission to support military veteran families, organizations that are dedicated to developing life-saving medical cures for children, and initiatives that focus on enhancing education and quality of life in under-resourced communities throughout our country.
To honor Veterans Day Month 2020, Mischler has made this year’s financial pledge to the Johnny Mac Soldiers Fund; Columbia University Medical Center’s Hope & Heroes Program; NF Forward, and buildOn.org.
Dean Chamberlain, CEO of Mischler, stated “Those of us who have served in the US military have learned to appreciate that we have one primary mission; to protect and ensure the safety and well-being of all Americans. In that spirit, we are determined to carry out this mission well after our military service has concluded, and the organizations we have committed our support to in this year’s Veterans Day Month pledge reflect our focus on giving back by paying forward.”
Added Mr. Chamberlain, “We thank our clients and customers for providing us the opportunity to serve them as they navigate the financial markets; those mandates further enable us to help those in need and to assist organizations that are dedicated to saving lives.”
