Veterans Initiatives

Investing in Those Who Have Served Our Country

The Clark family has long supported veterans’ services, and the Foundation proudly carries on its dedication to those who have served in our military. We target our support to help post-9/11 veterans navigate the transition from military to civilian life, investing in their health, education and future. We embrace their families as well, partnering with strong organizations that serve their spouses and their children.

The A. James & Alice B. Clark Foundation aims to help these organizations scale their capacity to meet the growing needs of veterans and secure sustainable funding to foster self-reliance.

We currently focus our veterans’ investments in the following areas:


We fund programs designed to provide academic support and services that help student veterans succeed.

Community & Sense of Purpose

We invest to get veterans back into their communities and back on their feet, working and volunteering alongside others toward a shared goal.


We foster the creation of desirable, fulfilling career pathways for veterans.

Health & Wellness

We support organizations that holistically address veterans’ mental and physical health through evidence-based treatments.

Family Support

We pursue partnerships that create community among veteran families and serve the children of veterans and fallen patriots.
