May 8, 2013. The Aurora Foundation is pleased to announce the launch of its new website. While the URL is the same, www.Aurora4vets.org, the site is much different. It has received a face-lift to emphasize the results that we've achieved with each grant we make and each intern we sponsor. You'll find improved navigation, a more engaging focus on the schools and veterans who have received support from Aurora (Where our Money Goes), and a more integrated social media approach. (Please follow us on Twitter @VetNetUSA, like us on Facebook, and enjoy our photos on Flickr!)
We believe the new site better conveys our mission and how our grants to colleges and universities, as well as our student veteran interns, help us support American's veterans as they return to school. To date, fourteen schools have received one of our grants. Consequently, over 18,000 student veterans have been touched by our programs, each of which is designed to help veterans make a smooth transition from "boots to books to business." We have also sponsored internships for 24 student veterans in multiple industries. As a result of these programs and internships, Aurora is proud to report that we are seeing the positive impact in retention and graduation numbers. We're adding to these numbers every day as we hear about the growing needs of American's heroes who strive toward a degree.
We remain committed to supporting America's veterans and their return home, joining them in the journey toward a "New Day," where they have a college degree, a new job, and a bright future. Please visit us at www.Aurora4vets.org to learn more about how you can help.
