In January 2005, when news began to focus on hardship stories of U.S. military veterans and their families, especially those veterans who fought and died or were wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan, the leadership of Raleigh Farnsworth & Abrams, Inc. decided to form a charitable organization to assist these heroic veterans along with their families. After two years of planning, ProNet International Gifts & Scholarships, Inc. was formed and awarded its 501 (c)(3) status. Its primary purpose is to provide veterans and/or their families financial aid to assist them in obtaining professional and/or academic degrees or other educational/athletic scholarships.
It is the mission of ProNet International Gifts & Scholarships, Inc. to promote the advancement of higher education in the form of financial grants and scholarships to U.S. military veterans, their families, and to others who qualify.
ProNet International Gifts & Scholarships, Inc. is the charitable arm of the insurance industry.
