The Foundation primarily provides educational support (e.g., college or trade school expenses) to the children of CIA officers who are killed in the line of duty. In May 2006, the Foundation's Board of Directors voted to expand its mission by providing educational support to the spouses of CIA officers who lost their lives in the line of duty and to the spouses and children of CIA officers who die while on active duty from accident, illness or other causes.

The Foundation will consider and has provided financial support to CIA officers and their families to deal with emergencies and specific circumstances resulting from carrying out the mission of the Central Intelligence Agency.

For the 2012-2013 academic year, the Foundation is providing $575,000 to 28 students attending colleges and universities around the country. Moreover, there are currently 61 dependent children and widows of CIA officers who are eligible to begin receiving benefits within the next 15 years.
