Persels & Associates announces that Jimmy Persels will lead the Persels Group Foundation.
"It is our honor and obligation to give back to those who have given so much to us,” said Jim Persels.
The Persels Group Foundation funds evidence-based health innovations and research and educational programs that put into everyday practice programs that improve the lives of the men, women and veterans of the US military.
Their mission is to reduce their barriers to education and health care and to fund research for medical and educational advancements that would directly improve their lives.
From our roots as military families and work as business leaders we embrace new challenges in providing the best health care and education to those men and women who give so much to us.
Persels Group Foundation empowers front-line organizations that research, design, fund, and implement effective, hands-on solutions that strengthen medical and educational services to military personnel, veterans and their families.
We partner with organizations from the community to the national level, building sustainable programs that deliver measurable results.
Our vision is to give back to the men and women who give so much to us and our hope is that no current or former member of the military would lack the medical or educational opportunities they so richly deserve.
We leave room for growth and change of our mission always mindful we are here to support the men and women of the military, veterans and their families.
