America’s freedom comes at a great cost. The Folded Flag Foundation serves to honor the legacy of and pay tribute to the brave men and women who gave their lives in defense of our country. In recognition of our fallen heroes, the Folded Flag Foundation awards educational grants and scholarships to families of the U.S. military and employees of the U.S. government who have lost their lives in combat. Qualifying spouses and children under the age of 26 can apply to receive scholarships and grants to assist with a wide range of educational needs, including K-12 tuition and tuition for college or trade school. All donations go directly to these scholarships; administrative costs are fully funded by corporate underwriters. Our American heroes risk their lives to serve our country. Help honor the memories of those who have fallen by showing your support to their families in need. Your donation will help strengthen their future on behalf of those who fought and died for all Americans. For more information about the Folded Flag Foundation, please visit their web site.
