What We Do
We Stand by Your Family’s Side
From Cradle to Career
Every child of a fallen Special Operator deserves the greatest opportunity for future success.
Should their parent make the ultimate sacrifice, Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF) will be by their side. Our commitment is to ensure every child of a fallen Special Operations Warrior receives a college education. As of November 2020, we have expanded program eligibility to include children of ALL Medal of Honor recipients as well.
Our commitment to academic success is much more than a tuition check. SOWF provides students with tools for educational success, including preschool funding, academic counseling, private tutoring, college planning, coaching and mentoring, and college-to-career transition.
We also fund educational programs specifically designed for children with special needs.

IMMEDIATE FINANCIAL SUPPORT FOR FAMILIES OF SEVERELY WOUNDED WARRIORS
We fulfill this need by immediately providing a check to the service member (or his/her designated recipient) so the family and loved ones can be at their bedside.
SOWF sends the hospitalized warrior an Echo Show to help facilitate video calls with family and friends.
SOWF also sends an additional stipend, on a case-by-case basis, or severely wounded, ill or injured warriors who are hospitalized for an extended period of time.
