Non-Profit Highlight: Screaming Eagle Foundation
The Screaming Eagle Foundation is Millan Enterprises’ non-profit highlight of the month! We are excited to be able to support this organization in multiple ways during the month of May.
The Screaming Eagle Foundation provides support to soldiers of the 101st Airborne Division and their families, offers several scholarship opportunities, and supports various Fort Campbell charities and philanthropic events.
Screaming Eagle Support Program
The Screaming Eagle Support Program (SESP) focuses on offering help to junior enlisted families who struggle to make ends meet due to unforeseen circumstances and emergencies. This support program is funded through generous donations from members of the 101st Airborne Division Association. Soldiers are able to apply for consideration by submitting documentation and a memorandum found on the SEF website.
Screaming Eagle Surviving Children’s Scholarship
In partnership with the Patriot Foundation, the SEF offers scholarships for secondary education and future use scholarships. These scholarships are eligible for surviving children of Soldiers of the 101st Airborne Division and Fort Campbell units who have been killed or severely wounded since September 11, 2001 in the Global War on Terror.
Since 2001, the foundation has provided over $750,000 in scholarships!
The foundation is currently accepting 2020 applications through June 12, 2020. Eligibility requirements and how to apply may be found on their website.
Along with the SEF Surviving Children’s Scholarship, they provide scholarships open to students who have the potential to become assets to our nation and plan to obtain a degree in one of the physical sciences, medical or scientific research fields.
Other Charity and Philanthropy Support
The SEF continues to show support to those of the 101st Airborne Division and Fort Campbell community by participating in other charity fundraising and philanthropic activities. These events include the annual Eric Yates 5K Memorial Run, donation of funds to the Fort Campbell YMCA and Fisher House, and donation of equipment to the local Clarksville Buddy Ball baseball fields.
Millan Enterprises Donates to the Screaming Eagle Foundation
This Memorial Day Weekend, Millan Enterprises partnered with the Screaming Eagle Foundation to help raise money and awareness of their scholarships and programs. With the efforts of a social media campaign, Millan Enterprises donated $250.00 to the Screaming Eagle Foundation. Our team was excited to help support a local non-profit organization that is dedicated to helping support the families of fallen 101st Airborne Division and Fort Campbell soldiers. Creating this campaign for the Memorial Day Weekend placed an emphasis on what this holiday truly means and allowed followers to be included in making an impact for this local organization.
