The Folded Flag Foundation would like to wish our many supporters a Happy New Year! As we kick-off 2021, we want to thank you for your generous donations to Folded Flag in 2020.
Last year, we could not have planned for or predicted the pandemic that affected millions of people both nationally and globally. Thankfully, with the support from our donors, we were able to continue our mission in providing educational scholarships to the spouses and children of our nation’s fallen service members.
In 2020, we were able to award more than $1.5 million to 359 scholarship recipients across the U.S. 155 were new scholars and 204 were returning scholars. See the image below for more information regarding our 2020 scholarship program. The 2020-21 scholarships bring the total grant money awarded by Folded Flag to more than $7.5 million.
In 2021, we wish to continue expanding our reach to help even more Gold Star families across the U.S. Thank you.
