Based in Owasso, Okla., Folds of Honor Foundation (FHF) was founded in 2007 as a legacy foundation with a mission to provide educational scholarships for children and spouses of military service men and women killed or disabled while serving our great country. Its vision is for every spouse and/or dependent to have the financial freedom and opportunity to pursue an education.
