Special Thanks to our Program Partners
SEALKIDS, Navy SEAL Foundation (NSW), SEAL Family Foundation (SFF), and SEAL Legacy Foundation (SLF) each serve the Naval Special Warfare community but have distinct missions and areas of expertise. One common area where all four agencies overlap involves fostering the academic success and well-being of children of NSW families.

Under this partnership SEALKIDS has continued its primary mission to provide testing and evaluation, advocacy, academic, and specialized needs support to children of NSW families. SEALKIDS now acts as the conduit through which all NSW children’s academic support flows for NSF, SFF, and SLF. Those three organizations provide financial support for SEALKIDS' program services in the form of a grant that provides operational stability and increases the reach of SEALKIDS. SEALKIDS is incredibly grateful for the support of our program partners.
