Cobalt Boats will donate proceeds from flagpole sales to Folds of Honor in 2015 to support the group’s mission of providing educational scholarships and assistance to the families of those killed or disabled in service.

“It’s an honor to have Cobalt Boats join us in our mission to ensure that no one is left behind on the field of battle,” Folds of Honor founder Maj. Dan Rooney said in a statement. “Boating is a quintessential American pastime and one of many freedoms that are protected by those who serve. Our partnership with Cobalt Boats allows us to grant more educational scholarships to those who are most deserving of our support.”

Through the scholarships, Folds of Honor ensures that the families of service members have educational opportunities. Since its founding in 2007, the Owasso, Okla.-based organization has awarded more than 7,500 scholarships, including more than 2,000 last year.

“As an American-made company, we’re proud to partner with Folds of Honor and support those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in defending our country,” Cobalt Boats CEO Paxson St. Clair said. “We’re confident that our flagpole initiative will bring awareness to the Folds of Honor mission and ultimately raise funds to support the educational dreams of our nation’s military families.”
