In Memoriam

The Marine Corps-Law Enforcement Foundation is deeply  saddened to learn of the passing of our dear friend, Roger Ailes. Roger has been an extremely generous and loyal supporter of our foundation since  our founding in 1995. Due to Roger and Beth’s incredible generosity, numerous children of fallen Marines and Federal Law Enforcement Officers have received educational grants.  In recognition of his  overwhelming support, Roger was our 2005  Semper Fidelis Award recipient. We are truly grateful for his counsel and  generosity and our deepest sympathies are with his wife Elizabeth and son Zachary.   James Kallstrom

Our Mission

Thanks to our generous donors, MC-LEF currently provides a $30,000 scholarship account for every child who loses a parent serving in the United State Marine Corps or any Federal Law Enforcement Agency. Since our founding in 1995, MC-LEF has awarded over $71 million in scholarships and other humanitarian assistance, and has supported over 3,900 children. Although MC-LEF is immensely proud of our work to date, there is still much to be done to support the families of America’s Marines and Federal Law Enforcement Officers.

“Dear Marine Corp-Law Enforcement Foundation,

Nearly 8 years ago, you awarded me with a scholarship for college.  At the time, I was a freshman in high school, and with everything my family was going through, did not take the time to truly appreciate it. On May 9th of this year I graduated from the University of Georgia, and believe me, there was no lack of appreciation.

My diploma belongs as much to you as it does to me. Thank you so much for honoring my father & giving me the opportunity you did.

God Bless, “

“I cannot begin to explain how much I appreciate what this foundation has given me.

I was fortunate enough to have been given a scholarship from MC-LEF and with that I was able to attend Florida State University in Tallahassee, Florida. I am currently in my fall semester of my junior year and I love it! This year I plan on volunteering with Project: Reaching All Wounded Warriors at FSU. I also have hopes to get a fundraiser going for MC-LEF because this foundation has given so much to me and I would love to give back.

Thank you for everything you have done for me and my education.

God Bless,”

“I want to thank MC-LEF from the bottom of my broken heart for the $30,000 education account set up for my son in honor/memory of my husband.

My husband would have been so touched to know that MC-LEF stepped up and acknowledged his service and sacrifice.

I will be forever grateful.“
