Folds of Honor Foundation

National Nonprofit

Folds of Honor Foundation is committed to the families of the armed services who have been wounded or killed while serving our great nation. We salute these heroic men and women, and have consequently established Folds of Honor Children's Scholarship Fund (CSF) to ensure no military family is left behind or forgotten. FHF through the Children's Scholarship Fund seeks to provide scholarships for Primary and Secondary Education (K through 12) for children of service members killed or 90 to 100 % disabled while serving in a combat zone in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF), Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) or Operation New Dawn (OND).

Children of deployed service members are particularly vulnerable to stresses and trauma related to a parent(s) serving in a combat zone for an extended period of time. Repeat deployments, the loss of parents and parents suffering from combat-related injuries have dramatically impacted our children. As a nation, it is our responsibility to do whatever we can to support military families.  CSF scholarships exist to subsidize the costs of tuition, approved tutoring, school uniforms, schoolbooks, fees, after school educational programs, and approved educational summer camps.


The Folds of Honor Foundation was founded in 2007 by Major Dan Rooney, a former F-16 pilot, golf course owner, PGA Professional and USGA member. A Major in the Air National Guard and a decorated military aviator, Rooney has served three combat tours in Iraq. After returning from his second tour, Major Rooney witnessed a profound situation that drove him to create the Folds of Honor Foundation.

Our Calling

Over 700,000 soldiers have been killed or disabled in the military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan--Iraqi Freedom, Enduring Freedom, and Operation New Dawn. These service members' families exceed the national average of 2.5 dependents per household. As of January 1, 2012, over one million dependents have been adversely affected by multiple deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan. More than 87% of the dependents affected by the recent wars do not qualify for federal scholarship assistance. While the federal government provides some support for these families, it cannot succeed alone without proactive civilian organizations to assist.

The need is great, and, to paraphrase the words of Patrick Henry, their battle is ours. As Americans, we feel a collective duty to honor those who have sacrificed by serving the families they leave behind.

My name is Yakira Cartledge and I'm honored to see I received the Folds of Honor Scholarship. Folds of Honor is a great organization who gives back to those who served or family members who have served. Even though it may have been an honor to receive the scholarship, I have had problems with the organization. It has taken over a month for the money to be spent to my school and the deadline for tuition payment is September 1, 2017. It is now August 31, 2017 and the money hasn't been received by my school. I had to take a loan to pay for the remaining balance because I didn't want to be withdrawn from my classes. Additional to having to take money out, I was also charged a late fee by the school.
To anybody who receives the scholarship, please stop on top of everything and emailing them every week.

I am an Oklahoman and proud, passionate Veteran advocate. I had the pleasure to work with the Folds of Honor Foundation in 2012 when worked together to promote their available scholarships to the Veteran and Military communities of our country. I was able to visit their headquarters in Owasso, Oklahoma where they run one of the most efficient and valuable services for families of fallen heroes and 100% disabled Veterans, that I have ever seen in my life.

I have visited with hundreds of not for profit organizations serving Veterans over the past four years and I consider Folds of Honor Foundation to be the number one most noble organization I have ever met. Their staff of sincerely great, wonderful people greeted our group with open arms after being well verified Veteran do gooders. They explained their model of taking donations and providing scholarships to children of those who have fallen to have such a beautiful impact on the Military families and Veterans we met.

If you are considering giving to a Veteran charitable organization this year, I sincerely hope you will consider Folds of Honor for your donation. They are an incredible 501(C)(3) with an amazing operation to ensure your donor investment is spent on serving those who need it most, which in this case, are children of fallen soldiers and 100% disabled Veterans.

I hope that every child that has to go through such an experience should have the peace of mind of knowing a scholarship is available for them to be successful in college, giving the parents absolute peace of mind from financial stress when they need to be focusing on healing and recovery.
