Mission, Vision and Values

40th Anniversary Messages from our Gold Star Families

Special Ops Warrior Foundation Mission is an enduring promise


The Special Operations Warrior Foundation’s enduring promise to America’s Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps Special Operations personnel is to:

 (1) Ensure full financial assistance for post-secondary education from an accredited two or four-year college, university, technical or trade school, as well as educational counseling, preschool grants, private tutoring, college planning and career transition programs to the surviving children of Special Operations personnel who lose their lives in the line-of-duty and the children of all Medal of Honor recipients.

(2) Provide immediate financial grants to severely wounded, ill, and injured  Special Operations personnel who require hospitalization.  


Ensure full post-secondary educational support to surviving children of special operations personnel and immediate financial assistance to severely wounded special operations personnel ~ today and in the future.

We hold ourselves, and others, to consistent standards of honesty and strong moral principles.


 Transparent fiduciary practices and fiscal compliance to optimize resources prudently, efficiently, and effectively.


Deliver our best daily and remain faithful to our mission.


Proactively address each student’s unique educational needs.
