About the Cause

Friends of Civil Affairs (FOCA) is a 501(C)(19) Veterans Organization that supports the morale and welfare of the Soldiers and Families of the Active Component Civil Affairs Regiment. Support is provided through Scholarships, Soldier Programs, Family Programs, and a Memorial Fund. The Scholarship Fund provides merit based scholarships for spouses and dependent children of FOCA members. Soldier Programs recognize Soldiers who exceed standards within the Civil Affairs Qualification Course and other education and mission oriented events. Family Programs supports Civil Affairs Family Readiness Groups through unsolicited donations that increase the resiliency of spouses and children. The Memorial Fund supports the families of Soldiers who were killed while deployed in support of our Nation and purchases paver stones displayed at the Airborne Special Operations Museum.
