Jeremy Chwat is a senior Nonprofit Executive who drives innovative and impactful program delivery, at large scales, while fostering systemic change to address complex mission challenges. He honed his skills as a founder and former Chief Program Officer and Chief Strategy officer at Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP), where he oversaw the organization's 20+ programs and services for veterans and their families. Jeremy was responsible for a team of over 250 staff members and over $150M in budget. Today, he assists non-profits of differing size to grow their revenue, programming or strategic positioning within their respective space.

Jeremy played a leading role in WWP’s efforts to pass the Traumatic Servicemembers Group Life Insurance (TSGLI) legislation, which provides insurance benefits to wounded members of our armed forces; as well as in WWP’s advocacy for enactment and implementation of the Family Caregiver Program of the Caregivers and Veterans Omnibus Health Services Act 2010.
