Once notified of a special operations soldier, airman, sailor, or Marine hospitalized with a severe injury, SOWF immediately sends a $5,000 grant to the service member (or his/her designated recipient) so the family and loved ones can travel to be at their bedside.
These funds are often used to reduce the burden of unexpected expenses such as airfare, pet care, child care, rental cars, etc.
The Foundation also provides wounded SOF warriors with an iPad so they can communicate with their friends and loved ones.
“Words cannot express our gratitude for your unselfish actions and kind heart. You have greatly helped with the transition to our new home and second chance at life. You will be forever in our thoughts and prayers.”

To date, the Special Operations Warrior Foundation has provided over $2.27 million to wounded special operations personnel and their families.
“The grant helped me to get to the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda to be there when my husband arrived. I also had to take a leave of absence from my 3rd grade teaching position, and this grant helped cover some of the lost income. Thank you so much for your support.”
