REGISTRATION CLOSED! THANK YOU FOR PARTICIPATING IN THE 2016 WARRIOR CHALLENGE!
Task Force Dagger Foundation (The Foundation) was established in July, 2009 and is a federally recognized 501(c) (3) nonprofit foundation. The Foundation assists US Army Special Operations Command (USASOC) soldiers and their families when a valid need is identified. A valid “need” is acknowledged as soon as possible and verified 1) Through the unit command and 2) Through the US SOCOM Care Coalition.
The Foundation keeps in contact with the unit command organization and the SOCOM Care Coalition to ensure that the funds were received and that no further assistance is needed. The Foundation is very judicious in how funds are disbursed. The goal is to ensure that the maximum amount of funds go to the soldiers and their families and not to overhead and expenses. By virtue of managing overhead and expenses, ninety-five percent of every dollar goes to the soldier and their family.
