Captain Scott Corwin Foundation

Captain Scott Corwin Foundation

The Captain Scott Corwin Foundation was created to honor the life and legacy of Captain Scott Corwin. We provide scholarships to high school student-athletes who show leadership on the field, in the classroom and in their community. We also host veterans and wounded warriors at sporting events such as Army football games, the Army-Navy game, and NCAA basketball tournament games. We do this as we feel this is what Scottie would want us to do. Our Foundation, founded in 2006, has no paid employees - all of our officers and board of directors devote all of their time and talent to Scottie's Foundation. The Captain Scott Corwin can be found on Guidestar, a clearing house for 501(c)3 organizations. Our giving/funding ratio is virtually 100% - every dollar contributed goest directly to our causes.

Families for Forgotten Heroes

Families for Forgotten Heroes

The Families For Forgotten Heroes program was founded on 7 April 2011. Part of our mission is to maintain an online searchable database of Unclaimed Veterans and locate as many of the families as we can and notify them of the burial or the death and burial of their family member. Interest in the Organization has grown rapidly. We have a team of several hundred volunteers and supporters behind us.

Our Fund raising efforts will help us continue our mission of providing an Internet Searchable Database of Unclaimed US Veterans, order copies of official records to aid us in our searches, and if needed update our software occasionally to better suit our needs. None of our fundraising activities goes to paying staff.
