Increase of Awards to $35,000
In light of increasing higher education costs and due to the generosity of our donors, it was recently decided to increase our award to $35,000.00 for each child who loses a parent while serving in the United States Marine Corps or Federal Law Enforcement. This change is effective immediately and applies to all awards granted after January 1, 2019.
Thanks to our generous donors, MC-LEF currently establishes a $35,000 educational account for every child who loses a parent serving in the United States Marine Corps or any Federal Law Enforcement Agency. Since our founding in 1995, MC-LEF has awarded over $76 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.
