Responsible Stewardship


The Navy SEAL Foundation is a 501(c)(3), tax exempt, national non-profit charitable foundation. We are audited annually and the final report is posted on the Foundation’s website for public review and publication, as is the annual IRS 990 filing. Financials are also available by contacting the Foundation’s office in Virginia Beach, VA.


We take steps to ensure the programs created are not only needed, but also sustainable. The Foundation positions itself to exist for the longterm. Programs are created with extensive analysis, and we are committed to providing each one as long as needed.


The Foundation’s goal is to provide a network of resources that is purposeful and easily accessible for the NSW force and their families. We seek to create efficiencies while leveraging the experience and resources of other reputable non-profits who are experts in the field. We have designed our programs to be complementary of the benefits and services provided by Department of the Navy and the Department of Defense. Before engagement, all direct support and program offerings are thoughtfully considered. The Foundation’s programs are directly related to specific areas of need created by the stresses of life in NSW. We help create the ability for NSW men, women, children and survivors to stand strong on their own, knowing we will stand behind them if we are needed.


With a staff of 7 full-time and 5 part-time employees, the Foundation has budgeted nearly $7.5 million in program support for the NSW community and their families in 2015. By 2019, we anticipate our program growth to reach or exceed $9 million. Since 2011, the Foundation has remained among the top tier of benevolent organizations for sound fiscal management, as well as sustaining a 4 out of 4-star rating from Charity Navigator putting us in the top 6% of charities in the United States.
