The Marine Corps Law Enforcement Foundation is dedicated to our heroes, the brave men and women who admirably serve our country and fellow citizens.
MC-LEF provides scholarships to the children of fallen United States Marines and Federal Law Enforcement Officers (FLEO).
Since our founding in 1995, MC-LEF has awarded over $67 million in scholarships and other humanitarian assistance, and supported over 3,700 children.
MC-LEF is sustained by a network of people who believe that the brave men and women who protect our country and our communities deserve to have their families protected as well. MC- LEF relies on the commitment of volunteers and generous donors across the country who organize events, provide financial support and recruit others to our cause.
Thanks to generous donors, MC-LEF is currently able to provide a $30,000 scholarship account for every child who loses a parent serving in the United State Marine Corps or any FLEO. In recent years, we have expanded our giving to provide medical equipment and financial support to catastrophically wounded Marines, as well as financial support for mentally or physically disabled children of active duty Marines for expenses not covered by government insurance. In the past, MC-LEF has also aided the children of other military personnel who perished in terrorist attacks, and supported the victims of extraordinary events that have impacted America.
MC-LEF is an approved IRS 501(c)3 organization that has been recognized for our excellence and efficiency by the Independent Charities of America. With only one paid employee, working only part-time, and a full network of over 65 volunteers, 98.4% of all donations to MC-LEF go directly to fund our mission.
