KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes’ foundation will provide 15 scholarships for the children of U.S. Navy SEALs.

The 15 and the Mahomies Foundation made the announcement Monday in conjunction with Memorial Day.

The grant money will be provided through the Honored SEAL Legacy Scholarship program as part of the foundation’s “15 for 15” initiative, which provides full cost-of-attendance scholarships for children of U.S. Navy Seals.

“It is truly a privilege to support the children of the Navy SEALs through the Honored SEAL Legacy Foundation Scholarship Program,” Patrick Mahomes said in a statement from the foundation. “The 15 and the Mahomies Foundation and I, are committed to the SEAL Creed that no one will be left behind.”

Mahomes’ foundation will pay for scholarships for 15 families of the more than 100 Navy SEALs who have died since the terrorist attacks in New York City on Sept. 11, 2001.

“On behalf of a grateful brotherhood, we thank Patrick Mahomes for his leadership,” SEAL Legacy Foundation Managing Director and United States Navy SEAL Mark McGinnis said. “These scholarships from 15 and the Mahomies will make a meaningful difference for the children of our SEALs.”
