The Navy SEAL legacy is one that is built on tenacity, courage and commitment. The Foundation’s individual grants program honors the sacrifices these men and their families have made in service to our country and promises to stand with them when the effects of service present challenges. It includes support for health costs, living expenses, child resiliency and educational needs, and other issues arising from frequent deployments and inherently dangerous work. These grants are designed to ease the financial burden that can occur immediately or even years after service.
SEAL Legacy Foundation Individual Grants are awarded based on eligibility and financial need.
