Of the one million-plus dependents adversely affected by deployments, nearly nine out of ten do not qualify for federal scholarship assistance. Since 2007, Folds of Honor has carried forth this singular, noble mission: to close the gap, providing educational support to spouses and children of America’s fallen and wounded soldiers. Since inception, Folds of Honor has awarded nearly 16,000 scholarships. In 2017, Folds of Honor awarded over 3,500 educational scholarships, however they still fell short of the need by $1,400,000.
In the folded Flag we see the heavy price of freedom. Yet it’s also a symbol of hope, representing the enduring ideals that make this country a beacon of democracy. Folds of Honor chose this logo because it reflects the mission - to honor the sacrifice of America’s heroes, while giving hope to the bearers of their legacy. This folded flag is a constant reminder of those who have paid the ultimate price for freedom. It inspires us to help equip and educate their loved ones in need of our support.
