SEAL Family Foundation

Foundation Facts

Founded in 2008, the SEAL Family Foundation is a nonprofit, 501(c)3 organization that raises funds and awareness for special programs in direct support of the Naval Special Warfare (NSW) families on a local, national and global scale. More than 90 percent of all funding supports direct services, and remaining funds directly support program administration and Foundation operations.

Our Mission

To support individual and family readiness through an array of programs specifically targeted to assist the Naval Special Warfare community in maintaining a resilient, sustainable, and healthy force in this era of persistent conflict and frequent deployments.

Our Vision

Our vision is to be the premier provider of benevolent civilian support services to the NSW communities we serve. This is pursued by collaborating with the leaders in Family Support to better understand the effects of deployment; by frequent analysis to ensure we are meeting current needs; by the delivery of exceptional programs; and by educating and involving the civilian population in support of these elite warriors.

Financials

We are committed to putting your dollars to work in our mission of taking care of the SEAL families who sacrifice so much for our freedom.

The SEAL Family Foundation is a 501(C)3 tax-exempt nonprofit organization.

WILLIAM R. FENICK, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Welcome to 2021!  Despite the challenges we all faced in 2020, I can assure for you that we continued to provide the ‘right programs the right way.’ We’ve all been through a lot in 2020, but I believe it’s made us stronger; stronger individually, as families, and as a community.  With that we step into this year confident in our ability to execute our mission and support the Navy SEAL families.  We thank you for your continued support which makes all we do possible and we’ll continue to ‘get it done in ’21!’
