The Marine Corps-Law Enforcement Foundation is very grateful to have received $1.1 Million from Mr. Donald Trump. Mr. Trump has been a longtime supporter of and contributor to our Foundation. So far this year, we have distributed more than $1 Million dollars in the form of $30,000.00 scholarships and humanitarian aid to the children of Marines, Navy Corpsmen and Federal Law Enforcement Officers. With our troops becoming more engaged in Iraq and Afghanistan, our need for financial support continues to grow. Please keep us in mind and remember that over 98% of every dollar received goes directly towards fulfilling 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 $67 million in scholarships and other humanitarian assistance, and has supported over 3,700 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 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.
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.“
