The Standard Charitable Foundation Grants $25,000 to Give an Hour™

The Standard Charitable Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Standard Insurance Company ("The Standard"), has announced a one-year $25,000 grant to Give an Hour™. This grant, the third made to the nonprofit organization since 2008, brings the total awarded to Give an Hour™ by the Foundation to $115,000.

"At The Standard, we strive to help people achieve financial security," said Greg Ness, president of The Standard Charitable Foundation and president and CEO at The Standard. "This philosophy also guides the Foundation's commitment to support organizations such as Give an Hour™, whose positive impact on families and individuals dealing with disabilities, mental health issues, and the loss of loved ones can be felt in communities throughout our nation."

"Financial support from The Standard Charitable Foundation over a three-year period has helped us continue to make a real difference in the lives of U.S. military personnel and their families," said Dr. Barbara Van Dahlen, founder and president of Give an Hour™. "The Standard has stepped up in recognition of this very deserving population--helping to address the psychological needs of military personnel and their families so that they can live better, more fulfilling lives."

The grant from The Standard Charitable Foundation will help Give an Hour™ recruit additional mental health professionals to its nationwide network of providers, allowing us to provide more services to veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.
