Experience creating and telling compelling stories on behalf of an organization or brand is a plus. This individual should have prior nonprofit board member experience.
GLAVREF supports research focused on health issues with direct relevance to Veterans. In support of these efforts, GLAVREF provides diverse services to investigators and project personnel through grants and contracts administration, human resources management, and technical support for grant submissions. GLAVREF also supports initiatives and education activities for VA clinicians and investigators.
GLAVREF is a VA-Affiliated research foundation also known as a non-profit corporation (NPCs). These like-minded institutions are based on a federally authorized statute passed in 1988. Today, GLAVREF is one of 79 active VA-affiliated research and education non-profits serving VA across the country. We recommend that Board members review and understand the authorizing statute(s). A very informative overview of the characteristics of the NPCs is posted on the National Association of Veterans Research and Education Foundations website at www.navref.org.

We build partnerships to advance research and education for the health of our Nation's Veterans
Established in 2018, the Greater Los Angeles Veterans Research and Education Foundation (GLAVREF) is the result of a merger between two long standing non-profit corporations that served Veterans Affairs Greater Los Angeles Health System (VAGLAHS). GLAVREF builds partnerships that strengthen the power of scientific discovery and education to improve the lives of Veterans. Our organization believes that excellence in administration and capacity building will contribute to a stronger, more responsive, and nimble research operation at VAGLAHS. All research studies and educational programs supported by VA NPCs benefit the VA’s research mission including patients and their families.
