Please consider donating any amount to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation.
The Special Operation Warriors Foundation is a 4-star rated charity. Created in 1980, Special Operations Warrior Foundation is devoted to providing a college education to every child who has lost a parent serving in the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps during an operational or training mission under the U.S. Special Operations Command. This includes over 70,000 military special operations and support personnel assigned to units throughout the United States and around the world.
The SOWF is committed to providing scholarship grants, not loans, to over 1,000 children, who survive over 900 Special Operations personnel who gave their lives in service to our country. Mission Statement Special Operations Warrior Foundation ensures full financial assistance for college for every child who loses a parent serving in special operations, offers on-going support and counseling to recipients and provides immediate financial assistance to every severely wounded special operations warrior so the family can be bedside and not be concerned with expenses as their loved one recovers.
