NAMED SCHOLARSHIPS

Your contribution to a student’s educational journey can be pledged over one or more years, ensuring their path to graduation is supported. Named scholarships can be established in the name of an individual, family, foundation, or business. SOWF will facilitate communication and updates from the student(s) on an annual basis. 

Named scholarships are incredibly valuable to SOWF’s scholarship program and enable donors to establish a philanthropic legacy with the foundation.

For more information about establishing a Named Scholarship, please contact our development team at 813.805.9400 or via email at operations@specialops.org.

There are many other ways you can offer your support for the families of our fallen special operations forces, such as arranging a gift from your estate, donating stocks or leaving a bequest in your will.

Designate us as a beneficiary of a retirement, investment or bank account, or your life insurance policy
Donate retirement/IRAs assets
Leave a charitable bequest in your will or trust
Set up a charitable gift annuity

Eagle Claw Society

Special Operations Warrior Foundation appreciates those supporters who have arranged a planned gift for the Foundation. Since many of these gifts will not be received by the Foundation until the donors pass away, we created the Eagle Claw Society to recognize and show thanks to these remarkable individuals during their lifetime. MEMBER BENEFITS:

A certificate of membership
A standing “welcome” to attend any SOWF event 


To enroll, simply arrange your planned gift and then send us your Eagle Claw Society Enrollment Form. If you have any questions, please call us at 813-805-9400 or send us an email at operations@specialops.org.
