FOUNDED IN 2010, The Silent Warrior Scholarship Fund was set up by Reconnaissance Marines in memory of their fallen brothers.
Originally founded as the Silent Warrior Scholarship Fund, our mission was to awards scholarships to any college-bound person based on direct familial relationship to a Reconnaissance Marine/0321 or Critical Skills Operator/0372, based on academic achievement, and financial need.
However, our mission has now evolved beyond our initial focus. We listened to the military community and our supporters. There has been an alarming rate of Veteran suicides and Veterans requiring assistance. For 2017, our board has decided to focus on our Veterans in need as well as provide scholarships.
Our new mission has grown to encompass support for our Veterans & their Families by providing access to emergency assistance, mental health services, education, and scholarships.

SILENT WARRIOR FOUNDATION IS 100% VOLUNTEER RUN
We were sick of seeing organizations taking in money for a noble cause, and wasting those dollars on overhead and other unnecessary expenses. The veteran world is truly a global community- and we reflect that in our mission to help veterans and their families accomplish their mission at home.
We are by design, a 100% volunteer run organization. We have no paid positions, no office to rent, or other hidden expenses. Sure, it takes us a few bucks to buy tee shirts and ship them out to you guys, but we truthfully put every penny we can into the cause.
