Our legacy.
Our future.

Fueled by a recognition of the singular role the military has played in American society, the Pritzker Military Foundation provides support aimed at deepening public understanding of that history, as well as protecting the health and well-being of our citizen soldiers.

LEARN MORE

The contributions of the citizen soldier have been a constant and substantial facet of our nation’s history, but they’re not always well or widely understood. Through the Pritzker Military Foundation, we hope to help shine a light on the military’s past and provide backing for the citizen soldiers who will shape its future.
