Thanks to our generous donors, MC-LEF currently provides a $30,000 educational account for every child who loses a parent serving in the U.S. Marine Corps or any Federal Law Enforcement Agency.
Since our founding in 1995, MC-LEF has awarded over $74 million in educational accounts and other humanitarian assistance to over 4000 recipients. We have only one paid employee and, therefore, the vast majority of our efforts are performed by a dedicated group of volunteers who run our various events. Additionally, all officers and board members are also volunteers and together, we are extremely efficient in running our organization so that donor funds are predominantly used to accomplish our mission of Educating the Children of Those Who Sacrificed All. 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.
