The Marine Corps Law Enforcement Foundation is dedicated to our heroes, the brave men and women who admirably serve our country and fellow citizens.
The presence of this Foundation in the Philadelphia area will help to continue to fund scholarships for the children of military and law enforcement personnel whom have given their lives while serving the citizens of the United States of America.
Through the continuous support of our donors, we have distributed aid with a value of more than $63,000,000.00. This assistance was primarily rendered to children of Marines or Federal law enforcement personnel who were killed on duty or died under extraordinary circumstances while serving our country at home or abroad. These funds enable us to provide these children with scholarships for their higher education. When a child of a United States Marine is afflicted with a physical or mental disability and requires special medical equipment or tutoring, our Foundation may grant financial assistance to that family if their personal insurance does not cover the complete cost of treatment for this child.
In the past, the Foundation also included in our program the children who lost a parent from all agencies killed in the murderous attack on the Pentagon. We also decided to go back and give our bonds to children who lost a parent on the USS Cole; the children of the Air Force personnel killed at Khobar Towers; and, with great honor, the twelve children who lost their parent on the space shuttle Columbia disaster.
This assistance has had a positive, life-changing effect on many, many children. We are thankful for the commitment and support of our many members and volunteers.
To encourage the spiritual, moral, intellectual and physical development of children through education. This Foundation was formed in February of 1995 by former Marines and law enforcement personnel who strongly believe that our nation’s most precious resource is its youth..READ MORE ABOUT US
