As a spouse of a SEAL I have received tremendous support from the NSF. I recently received a $5000 scholarship to pursue my masters degree. They have also helped in travel expenses for myself and my husband when our friends were killed.

I attended a fundraiser in Florida that was organized by a friend on behalf of the Navy SEAL Foundation and she was brought to tears due to the lack of support from the foundation. Here you had a citizen who was organizing and coordinating a function for the foundation and they were no where to be found throughout the planning stages. Finally my friend established contact with the Navy SEAL Museum in Fort Pierce, Fl (Never knew there was a SEAL museum in Florida) and those folks saved the day. I thought all the SEAL organizations were under one umbrella but it looks like you have a few separate orgs. Bottom line is I'm sure the foundation helps the families but they need to be more responsive to the citizens who are trying to help them. I did find out that the SEAL museum has a house where they bring families to recover over their lost and fallen SEALs. I think I'll donate to that next -

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Change the complexion of the board. Get a real event coordinator.

Gave a $100 donation on-line but did not receive any acknowledgment. Gave to another military special operations foundation and at least received a letter acknowledging the donation.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Benefit the men and their families who give the ultimate sacrifice for our nation.

Ways to make it better...

the organization acknowledged the donation.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

One thing I'd also say is that...
