About Navy SEAL Foundation

The Navy SEAL Foundation's mission is to provide immediate and ongoing support and assistance to the Naval Special Warfare (NSW) community, their families, the families of the fallen, wounded NSW warriors, and transitioning NSW veterans. U.S. Navy SEALs have been in sustained combat for more than 14 years, performing hazardous work in unforgiving environments at an unrelenting pace. SEALs are currently deployed in more than 35 countries across the globe, and can spend up to 270 days each year in harm's way. The Navy SEAL Foundation stands behind these warriors by delivering comprehensive, world-class programs that specifically address the NSW community's unique needs.

Like the community it serves, the Foundation is a solid, high performing organization committed to excellence. 95 cents of every dollar donated goes directly to current or future programs. This year, in addition to receiving its 5th consecutive 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, the Foundation was one of only 49 national charities to score a perfect 100 for sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency placing it in the top .6% of all rated charities.
