The Jonas Project

The Jonas Project takes putting veterans to work one step further.

It’s mission is to grow Veteran owned business opportunities through collaboration, not duplication.

The Jonas Project is collaborating with partners throughout the community, city and state to provide financial assistance and support for those Veterans who return home with a new vision for their lives – being an entrepreneur.

Student Veterans of America 

SVA was founded to provide military veterans with the resources, support, and advocacy needed to succeed in higher education and after graduation. The backbone of SVA is the chapter, a campus-based student veteran organization. SVA supports these student veteran leaders with innovative programs and services such as the annual Leadership Institute, chapter grants, scholarships, the Internship Support Program, and more. Collectively, SVA and its national network of more than 600 chapters are changing the landscape of higher education to empower student veterans to graduate with market-valued degrees.

VA Women’s Health Care addresses the health care needs of women Veterans and works to ensure that timely, equitable, high-quality, comprehensive health care services are provided in a sensitive and safe environment at VA health facilities nationwide.

  • Privacy, safety, dignity, and sensitivity to gender-specific needs
  • The right care in the right place and time
  • State-of-the-art health care equipment and technology
  • High-quality preventive and clinical care, equal to that provided to male Veterans

Military Families:


In June 2011, Syracuse University made an institutional commitment to launch the nationally focused Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF), a historical first in the context of higher education. To support this effort, JPMorgan Chase (JPMC) broadened its existing collaboration with the University to provide industry leadership. The mission of the IVMF is to fully leverage the intellectual, human and social capital of higher education, in service to America’s veterans and their families. To this end, the IVMF develops and nurtures a community of interdisciplinary scholarship—including the arts, humanities, social sciences, business, medicine, education and law—positioned to investigate and confer insight into the social, psychological and economic issues impacting this community.
