Freedom and Whiskey Foundation

>> Freedom and Whiskey Foundation

The “Freedom & Whiskey Foundation” is an evolution of nonprofits with a deliberate focus on an efficient and streamlined organizational structure in order to provide optimal support to the Special Operations Forces’ (SOF) community. “Freedom & Whiskey Foundation” exists to do everything possible to allow transitioning operators a good life after retirement.

The “Freedom & Whiskey Foundation” is directed by former SOF veterans who are able to better forecast the current needs of transitioning SOF veterans by establishing and maintaining simple lines of communications with friends that are still active. The foundation will initially be a collaboration between Leiper’s Fork Distillery, located in Middle Tennessee, and retired SOF operators, eventually adding additional regional spirits producers to the program as growth and capability needs warrant.

The “Freedom & Whiskey Foundation” nonprofit’s primary objective is to enable transitioning operators to choose how they want to live their next phase of life by equipping them with integral resources that are unfortunately not readily accessible to these heroes who have spent 20+ years destroying their mind, body & soul, and in turn options for a future, because of extreme training programs and constant deployments to the most dangerous places on Earth. The “Freedom & Whiskey Foundation” developed a series of “pathways” for retiring operators (and families) to utilize as a means to carve out the type of life they deserve and have more than earned.

Pathway 1

Advanced Scholarship provision to any college program into which a selected and qualified Operator is accepted.

Pathway 2

Introduction and Integration into specific industry networks consisting of patriotic supporters who understand how to translate an operator’s skillset into an invaluable asset.

Pathway 3

Become a “Expedition Leader” and take donors on life changing adventures.
