Navy SEAL Foundation
Established to serve U.S. Navy SEALs, Special Warfare Combatant-craft Crewmen, Naval Special Warfare (NSW) support personnel, and their families, the Navy SEAL Foundation offers critical support to Naval Special Warfare commands, active-duty personnel, their families, and veterans of NSW. As the duration and frequency of training and operational deployments continue, and the stress on the families and operators grows, this important community requires support today more than ever.
Navy SEAL Foundation's Three Core Areas of Support
Members of the Naval Special Warfare community, their spouses and their children make many sacrifices, both large and small, in service to our country. Our objective is to provide support and promote peace of mind to those who live with a high level of unknown factors as a matter of routine.
Family Services Show Compassion and Build Morale
We support families by easing their burden when an active-duty member of the NSW community is injured or killed in action. We help with memorial services and defray the financial costs for travel for immediate family members who live far away. We also assist families in maintaining a sense of normalcy during deployments by funding holiday celebrations, children's sports days and campouts, and partnering with YMCAs to offer fitness memberships and childcare services.
Educational Programs Encourage Life-long Learning
Active-duty NSW personnel, their spouses and their children benefit from scholarship programs and other educational assistance provided by the Navy SEAL Foundation. In cases where the Navy provides only tuition funds, we step up to help cover the cost of educational expenses such as books and lab fees. Our program for children of NSW operators killed in training or combat provides new computers every three years through the completion of their secondary education.
Legacy Activities Ensure That Service is Always Honored
The Navy SEAL Foundation is strongly committed to making sure that the extraordinary contributions made in defense of our freedoms by members of the NSW community are remembered. We provide funding for monuments and memorials to fallen operators across the country.
