Minimizer makes large donation to Wyakin Foundation

(Blooming Prairie MN January 2017) – Minimizer is making a $20,000 donation to the Wyakin Foundation, which assists wounded veterans in adapting to civilian life.

“This is something very near and dear to our hearts,” Minimizer CEO and Chief Visionary Craig Kruckeberg said. “The Wyakin Foundation serves as an invaluable resource in helping injured veterans transition to civilian life. These great people have served our country and deserve every opportunity to achieve success in the future.”

“Minimizer has once again stepped up in a big way,” Wyakin Executive Director Brent Taylor said. “We can’t thank them enough for their continued generosity. This will go a long ways in helping us assist wounded veterans.”

The Wyakin program application process is open to wounded, ill or injured post-9/11 veterans who are currently enrolled or planning to enroll in a certificate- or degree-earning academic program.

“Our program is designed to support veterans who are committed to a successful transition into civilian careers through education,” Taylor said. “We currently have Warriors seeking Professional Certifications, two- and four-year degrees, and graduate degrees.”

“When we first heard about the Wyakin mission, we wanted to help in any way possible,” Kruckeberg said. “This isn’t a handout. It’s about giving them the best chance to succeed.”
