Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

As recently as 2003, the benefit paid to eligible survivors of military personnel killed in the line of duty was a one-time payment of only $6,000. Since then, the death benefit has been raised. But despite the increase, the current death benefit is often unable to provide the necessary support to Gold Star family members. The Folded Flag Foundation provides educational scholarships and support grants to close the gap for the families to ensure they receive a quality education. We provide scholarships to children up to age 26 and the spouses.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Folded Flag Foundation was formed as a non-profit organization that relies on public donations to help supplement the current death benefits available to the dependents of United States military personnel and other government employees while deployed in combat. The Foundation is strongly committed to honoring these Military Fallen Heroes by aiding the families with financial support for continued education.

Through an extensive network of corporate sponsors, a passionate board and volunteers, the Foundation raises funds through general fundraising efforts and special events. Corporate sponsors Black Knight Financial Services and ServiceLink underwrite all administrative costs, enabling 100% of ALL donations to go directly to the qualifying families.

For the 2020-2021 school year, we provided 358 scholarships worth just over $1.5M. We are expanding our outreach efforts to reach more Gold Star families with a goal of 800 applications with 10% of those being first time applicants.
