A Mission to Help SEAL Families
reconnect, build fortitude,
The C4 Foundation was created to provide resources and support available nowhere else to active-duty Navy SEALs and their families. Through neuroscience-based programs recognized by Naval Special Warfare, we strengthen relationships and support networks for our nation’s most elite warriors, their immediate families and the broader SEAL community.
The mission of the C4 Foundation and fortitude-building programs at the C4 Ranch is to significantly reduce stress, strengthen family connections and nurture feelings of optimism and gratitude.
A love of country, devotion to his family and Navy SEAL brothers, a zest for life: this is the legacy of Charles Humphrey Keating IV, or “C4.” On May 3, 2016, he heroically gave his life in Iraq defending our freedom. We created the C4 Foundation to preserve C4’s spirit of family, friendship and community. Every SEAL family that shares the beauty and meaningful experience of the C4 Ranch honors C4’s legacy.
Strengthening SEAL Families
makes a difference
The C4 Foundation fills a desperate need that has been neglected far too long. Many organizations address the needs of veterans. Ours is the first focused on building family fortitude across the SEAL community.
