Preschool Funding

Ready for Long Term Success

Special Operations Warrior Foundation’s commitment to ensuring student success and participation in a preschool program sets a strong foundation for that success. Being a part of a strong early childhood education program offers the fundamentals and sets the expectation for continued academic success. By focusing on the youngest students, we are able to ready these children for long term success. 

Special Operations Warrior Foundation provides funding for preschool programs for all surviving children, ages 2-5, of Special Operations personnel who have lost their lives in the line of duty. SOWF will provide up to $8,000 per calendar year (per child) for preschool programs that have national accreditation for early childhood programs. 

By providing funding for preschool programs, these children have the opportunity to start early with their educational development as well as prepare them for transition into elementary school. 

Pictured above is Harper Sims, surviving child of CW3 Jacob Sims who lost his life in Afghanistan while serving with the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment in 2017. Here she is pictured on her first day of preschool, funded through SOWF.
