PenFed Helps Local Veterans Land Jobs at High-Tech Firms

PenFed continues to invest in leading community partners

TYSONS, Va., Jan. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- For the third consecutive year, PenFed Credit Union is donating $25,000 to the Northern Virginia Technology Council (NVTC) Foundation in support of the NVTC Veterans Employment Initiative. Through this donation, PenFed will help veterans and their spouses secure jobs and careers within Northern Virginia's technology sector.

"We have incredibly talented men and women transitioning out of the military in the D.C. Metro area every day, yet there are scores of unemployed and underemployed veterans. At the same time, Northern Virginia is home to world-class companies and some of the nation's top technology organizations. Through NVTC and the Veterans Employment Initiative, we are able to connect the two and, most important of all, serve those who have selflessly served our nation," said PenFed President and CEO James Schenck. "PenFed is proud to have donated $75,000 to VEI since 2015, and we look forward to continuing to support them and their mission to serve our veterans."

NVTC launched the Veterans Employment Initiative (VEI) in 2013 to accelerate veteran transitions to civilian life by providing better employment opportunities within Virginia's technology community. VEI connects veterans with jobs, internships, mentorships and education/certifications while also providing support to member companies in their efforts to recruit, hire, train and retain qualified veteran employees. 

"We are grateful to the ongoing support PenFed has provided VEI over the last three years. Having this level of sustainable funding is immensely important to our ability to connect veterans with careers in our region's technology community," said NVTC President and CEO Bobbie Kilberg. "PenFed is truly making a difference in the lives of our veterans and in the business community of Northern Virginia."

PenFed donated over $6 million to charitable organizations in 2016 and intends to continue to support a myriad of organizations that are making a difference for veterans and their families. 

"PenFed is committed to helping our nation's defenders and their families on many levels: from providing them rewarding jobs and careers at PenFed, to helping them do better through our financial programs and the PenFed Foundation, to opening doors to new careers at other great organizations within Northern Virginia," said Schenck. "These are the people who make America the greatest nation in the world, and there is no more noble cause than giving back to them in every way we can."
