The PenFed Foundation and Onward Ops Partnership

The PenFed Foundation has partnered with Onward Ops to empower veterans as they make the challenging transition from military service to success in the civilian world.

The program is on track to enroll more than 24,000 transitioning service members and their families over the next 12 months. It is offered at no cost to service members up to a year before they depart the military and provides the option to choose a self-guided transition with personalized resources and tools or a sponsor-guided transition with personalized, hands-on support from experienced sponsors.

Helping Military Service Members Transition

Our partnership is designed to facilitate the shared goal of empowering military service members, Veterans and their communities with the skills and resources to realized financial stability and opportunity.

The transition out of uniformed services for many service members is difficult. Onward Ops provides support to active-duty service members as they navigate their way back into civilian life. They connect new Veterans with trained sponsors from their destination community, focusing on the 12 months between leaving the military and reintegrating into civilian life. They offer the tools to achieve their goals and a supportive sponsor to guide them through the process.
