Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

The Special Operations Warrior Foundation provides full scholarship grants and educational and family counseling to the surviving children of Special Operations personnel killed in operational or training missions and provides immediate financial assistance to severely wounded special operations troops and their families.
The Special Operations Warrior Foundation has three program areas providing support and assistance to special operations personnel and their families:
Scholarships: The Special Operations Warrior Foundation provides full educational scholarships, not grants, for surviving children of fallen Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps special operations personnel. Funding includes tuition, books, fees, room and board. Today, there are some 113 students enrolled in colleges and universities across the country with funding from the Foundation. Family Services: One of the major aspects that makes the Warrior Foundation different from other scholarship foundations is our proactive approach to getting our students into college. We actively stay in touch with each of our families and students throughout the formative years through birthday cards, graduation cards, and invitations to events across the country. We have a school psychologist on our staff assistance those families who need assistance with learning disabilities, academic challenges, and other counseling needs. Wounded Warrior Support: The Special Operations Warrior Foundation provides immediate financial assistance to special operations personnel severely wounded in combat. The Foundation provides $2,000 immediately to the families so they can be bedside at the hospital with their loved one.
