I am the CEO for a charitable company who has worked with Special Operations Warrior Foundation for the last two years and look forward to many more. They are leaders in non-profit giving and give to a cause close to our hearts. Their transparency, clarity of mission, and amazing performance have established an incredible reputation. These are the reasons we work solely with Special Operations Warrior Foundation for our Military giving and charitable efforts. They are great people working for an outstanding non-profit. It is both an honor and privilege to work with SOWF and assist the families of Special Operations. We support SOWF for those that do the deed and live a life of example in service and sacrifice!

I have personally seen the great work this organization has done for the families of my fellow warriors who were killed in my unit. Several of the men had young children and young wives. SOWF quickly steeped in to provide immediate financial and emotional support but it has been the long term support they have given to the families and children of these buddies that is most impressive. We in SF are a tight community and the guys follow up to make sure the widows and children are doing well. They tell us that the SOWF has remained in contact and provided every educational and vocational need that these children and even the wives needed to have a good quality of life and fulfill the dreams that my buddies had for their kids. I strongly support and endorse SOWF whenever someone asks me who they should donate to.

I asked a warrior the best place to donate and his recommendation was Special Operations Warrior Foundation. I had never heard of it, but research showed me how well the donations are used. I contribute on a monthly basis.

This is the best foundation around. Not only is their mission critical to the families they help, but they always strive, with great success, to make sure their funding actually gets to those that need it the most. Proud to be a supporter. Bravo Zulu!

When our son was killed in 2012 at the tender age of 26, this is the organization he had chosen for memorials to be made in his honor. Why? Because as a Special Forces soldier he knew the importance of taking care of his team even after death. This is an organization he strongly believed in for good reason. We as Nic's family are proud to lend our support and grateful that such an organization exists.

I have supported this organization through Painting with a Twist SOWF nights. As a surviving spouse I know how important it is to find a dedicated and legitimate charity organization for spouses and children. SOWF does it best!
