STAMFORD, Conn., Nov. 4, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mischler Financial Group, Wall Street's oldest minority investment bank and institutional brokerage owned and operated by service-disabled veterans, announced today that in honor of the upcoming Veteran's Day, the firm has pledged 10% of its November profits to Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation ("CFPF"), the national organization that provides college scholarships and educational counseling to military children who have a lost a parent in the line of duty.
According to Dean Chamberlain, CEO of Mischler Financial Group, "In the course of our serving leading corporations, public plan sponsors and the industry's most recognized investment managers, our mandate is to dedicate the fruits of those labors to veteran-centric organizations that make a crucial difference in the lives of military veterans and their families. Towards that goal, our embracing an organization that sponsors college education for deserving, yet financially-challenged children of military members killed in the line of duty is perhaps one of the most impactful ways that we can "pay it forward."
Noted David Kim, the Founder and President of Children of Fallen Patriots and the co-head of Investor Relations for Apax Partners, one of the world's most recognized private equity firms, "Among the many formidable organizations and individuals who support our efforts, having the additional financial support of the oldest veteran-owned Wall Street firm speaks volumes to the very heart of our mission."
Added Kim, "Thanks to Mischler Financial's direct advocacy, and the indirect support of those who do business with Mischler, we are making a critical investment in our country's future, as grants we make go directly towards helping to pay for a college education for those in need; perhaps the most important, life-changing tool for any American."
