America’s freedom comes at a great cost
The Folded Flag Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization that serves to honor the legacy of and pay tribute to, the brave men and women who have given their lives in defense of our country.
Our vision is a total embrace of family after loss, with education as the cornerstone.
We achieve this by:
with their transition to civilian life through our Gold Star Family Service Grant Program
obtain an education, establish careers and more effectively provide for their children
of children in K – 12 (private school, individual tutoring, specialized programs, etc.) to ensure they are on a successful path towards college
for the children as they make their way through college and into their careers
The mission of The Folded Flag Foundation is to provide educational scholarships and support grants to the spouses and children of the United States military and government personnel who died as a result of hostile action or in an accident related to U.S. combat or stateside military operations.
Scholarships and grants are available to qualifying spouses of fallen heroes and their children under the age of 26 to help provide a pathway to success by covering a wide range of living expense and educational needs, from kindergarten to college/trade school.
