501c3-stamp-padJune 23, 2014 – After 7 years of planning and IRS applications, the Veteran Business Owners Initiative (VBOI) has been granted status as “public non-profit charity” (501 C3). This entitles financial donors to make charitable tax reducing gifts to further the purposes of the VBOI.

The Initiative will continue and expand its work to teach and support wounded veterans and their families. The development of private businesses and the entrepreneurial spirit is our current activity with an emphasis on developing “life-style” entrepreneurs who consider and support stakeholders (wives, husbands, children) as an essential part of their lives, important to the success of their businesses.
