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

We hope this finds you well.  Well into 2021 we continue to work on support for the kids, the spouses and the families in NSW.  We are staying on task and executing our mission. 

Thank you to all those that supported us last year and continue to support us.  We can’t do what we do without you.  

So, as we begin to open up, we are happy to announce that we will be hosting, with SEALKIDS, a Gala dinner in San Francisco at the St Francis Yacht Club on 10 September and one in Virginia at the Navy Country Club on 28 October.  These joint events will highlight all the good both our organizations do to support the force. We are excited about this joint approach.

And since we have embraced doing a lot of our work virtually, we are excited about our online SEAL Author Speaker Series, hosted by Board Member Brent Gleeson.  We’ll host one a month.  

Additionally, we are offering an online workout program; the SEAL Grinder Challenge.  It’s a six month program, one month at a time, designed to provide an opportunity for you to experience the workouts the students are challenged to do.

Join us for these opportunities.

Lastly, keep an eye out for our online auction to begin early next month and the opening of our online store where you can purchase our logo gear.  We are excited to get these both out there for you.  

So, as we move into the center of this year, we are keeping the press on, with family support, creating events to recognize the community, and opportunities to be a part of the community.  

We hope you will continue to be a part of all we do.  Together we are stronger.
