ProNet International, Inc. ("PNI") was formed in June 2000. Members of the organization include independent adjusters, defense attorneys, and other specialists who provide various services for property and casualty insurance companies, Third Party Administrators, and self-insured entities throughout the USA.
PNI conducts annual conferences and provides continuing education classes for insurance industry professionals. Along with these conferences, PNI and its members hold fundraising events to assist charitable organizations.
In January 2005, when news began to focus on hardship stories of U.S. military veterans and their families, especially those veterans who fought and died or were wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan, the leadership of PNI decided to form a charitable organization to assist these heroic veterans along with their families. After two years of planning, ProNet International Gifts & Scholarships, Inc. was formed and awarded its 501 (c)(3) status. Its primary purpose is to provide veterans and/or their families financial aid to assist them in obtaining professional and/or academic degrees or other educational/athletic scholarships. ProVets is the online face of ProNet Gifts and Scholarships, Inc.
It is the mission of ProVets and ProNet International Gifts & Scholarships, Inc. to promote the advancement of higher education in the form of financial grants and scholarships to U.S. military veterans, their families, and to others who qualify.
ProVets and ProNet International Gifts & Scholarships, Inc. are the charitable arms of the insurance industry.
