ABOUT THE  FOLDS OF HONOR FOUNDATION

The Folds of Honor Foundation is rallying a nation to ensure no family is left behind in the fight to preserve American freedom. Through scholarships and other assistance, we give back to the spouses and children of soldiers killed or disabled in service to our country. We provide healing, hope and an opportunity for dreams to be realized...with the support of people like you. We feel this is our duty as citizens of the greatest country in the world.
 

OUR CALLING

Over 60,000 soldiers have been killed or disabled in the military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan--Iraqi Freedom, Enduring Freedom, and Operation New Dawn. These service members' families exceed the national average of 2.5 dependents per household. As of January 1, 2014, over 1.4 million dependents have been adversely affected by multiple deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan. More than 87% of the dependents affected by the recent wars do not qualify for federal scholarship assistance. While the federal government provides some support for these families, it cannot succeed alone without proactive civilian organizations to assist.

The need is great, and, to paraphrase the words of Patrick Henry, their battle is ours. As Americans, we feel a collective duty to honor those who have sacrificed by serving the families they leave behind.

  • 87% of wounded service members' families do not qualify for Veterans Administration federal educational benefits.
  • Over 1.4 Million Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Freedom, and Operation New Dawn dependents need assistance.

 

CHILDREN'S SCHOLARSHIP FUND

Folds of Honor Foundation is committed to the families of the armed services who have been wounded or killed while serving our great nation. We salute these heroic men and women, and have consequently established Folds of Honor Children’s Scholarship Fund (CSF) to ensure no military family is left behind or forgotten. FHF through the Children’s Scholarship Fund seeks to provide scholarships for Primary and Secondary Education (K through 12) for children of service members killed or 90 to 100 % disabled while serving in a combat zone in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF), Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) or Operation New Dawn (OND).

Children of deployed service members are particularly vulnerable to stresses and trauma related to a parent(s) serving in a combat zone for an extended period of time. Repeat deployments, the loss of parents and parents suffering from combat-related injuries have dramatically impacted our children. As a nation, it is our responsibility to do whatever we can to support military families.  CSF scholarships exist to subsidize the costs of tuition, approved tutoring, school uniforms, schoolbooks, fees, after school educational programs, and approved educational summer camps.

 

SCHOLARSHIP ELIGIBILITY

Children’s Scholarship Fund is established for military children in grades K though 12 whose service member parent(s) meets one of the following eligibility requirements:

  • Killed in action in support of OIF, OEF, OND;
  • Killed in the Line of Duty while deployed in a combat zone in support of OIF, OEF, OND;
  • Wounded in Action with a 90 to 100% VA disability rating in support of OIF,OEF, OND;
  • Disabled in the Line of Duty with a 90 to 100% VA disability rating while deployed in a combat zone in support of OIF, OEF, OND.

 

MISSION STATEMENT

The Folds of Honor Children’s Scholarship Fund broadens the mentorship of children whose parent has been killed or disabled while serving in a combat zone in Iraq or Afghanistan. This program provides support for their future growth through services devoted to the mind, body and spirit.
