15 and the Mahomies announced 15 scholarships for children of the U.S. Navy SEALs.
The Kansas City Chiefs are well known for their commitment to the community through the organization itself and its players and that trend continues with the ongoing community work of the team’s youngest stars. Patrick Mahomes recently added the latest page in a book of strong civic service and community engagement by providing scholarships to children of Navy SEALs through his non-profit 15 & The Mahomies.
Via a press release sent on the Memorial Day holiday, the organization announced that they were providing grant money that would cover the cost of 15 different scholarships through the Honored SEAL Legacy Scholarship Program. More than one hundred Navy SEALs have been wounded or died since 9/11, per the release, and the money helps provide security and a stronger future for those families who have suffered so much loss. It’s also a wonderful way to pay tribute to those who have given their lives in service to this country.
"“It is truly a privilege to support the children of the Navy SEALs through the Honored SEAL Legacy Foundation Scholarship Program,” Patrick Mahomes said. “The 15 and the Mahomies Foundation and I, are committed to the SEAL Creed that no one will be left behind.”"
Mahomes established his organization in 2019 with a mission to “improve the lives of children.” Specifically, the mission is to “support initiatives that focus on health, wellness, communities in need of resources and other charitable causes.” In its first year-plus of existence, 15 and the Mahomies have worked to provide playground equipment, fight pet homelessness, and provides hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants to organizations like Special Olympics Missouri and multiple Boys and Girls Clubs in both Kansas City and Lubbock, Texas.
