The Year in Review
Letter from the President

Dear MC-LEF Friends,

I am writing you this letter to wish all of you a happy and healthy Holiday Season and to thank you for your loyal support. I want to bring you all up to date on how your support has impacted our mission and where your donations have gone this past year. So far this year, we have awarded 126 scholarships or humanitarian aid which has totaled $2,705,242.39.

As you can see, we have been able to help many families. We truly know that this has only been possible due to our loyal donor support. On behalf of the children and families we serve, please accept our sincere thanks for helping them.

Since 1995, MC-LEF has continued to operate through the efforts of volunteers. In 2007 we brought on one part time employee to help run the operation. We strive to make sure every dollar donated goes towards our mission. We are proud to report that in 2016, over 98 cents on every dollar did just that – went to those in need.

As our world environment continues to be unsettled, we undoubtedly will be relying on our brave Marines and Federal Law Enforcement Agents to watch over us. May God bless them and keep them safe! If you are considering making a year-end charitable donation, please consider giving to MC-LEF which will allow us to continue to fulfill our mission. It is vitally important for the families we serve to know that their fellow Americans stand with them in their time of need. Thank you for your generosity and continued support.

As of February 21, 2017 we have awarded $633,173 to 29 recipients.

Since 1995, we have awarded $71,223,459 to 3906 recipients.

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 $70 million in scholarships and other humanitarian assistance, and has supported over 3,800 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.“
