Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund
The Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund provides financial assistance to injured Marines and other service members injured while assigned to Marine forces. The goal is to alleviate the financial burden placed on the family so that their focus can be on their loved one’s recovery. If the mother of a wounded Marine needs help with travel expenses to be with her son or daughter, the Semper Fi Fund is there. If the wife of an injured Marine falls behind on a mortgage payment because she left work to be with her husband at the hospital, the Semper Fi Fund is there. If a wounded Marine, whose sight was impaired from an RPG blast, needs a special magnifier, the Semper Fi Fund is there.

“Semper Fi” means “Always Faithful.” That is our pledge to the heroic Marines who have been injured while protecting our nation.

Wounded Warrior Project
The mission of the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) is to raise public awareness and enlist the public's aid for the needs of severely injured service men and women, to help severely injured service members to aid and assist each other, and to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet their needs.

WWP accomplishes this mission by providing programs and services to severely injured active service members and their families during the critical time between their initial rehabilitation while on active duty and their eventual transition to civilian life. WWP employs staff with over 55 years of combined experience in providing direct services to active duty service members and disabled veterans, including benefits counseling, representation before the department of veterans affairs, bringing public attention to the needs of wounded service members, and advocating for regulatory and statutory changes beneficial to veterans and active duty service members.

Fisher House
A Fisher House™ is a “home away from home” for families of patients receiving medical care at major military and VA medical centers. As of this printing, there are 35 Fisher Houses located on 18 military installations and eight VA medical centers, with another three houses under construction. The program began in 1990 and has offered more than two million days of lodging to more than 75,000 families. Families of service men and women hospitalized due to their service in Iraq or Afghanistan do not pay to stay at a Fisher House, and the foundation helps cover the cost of alternative housing when the Fisher Houses are full.

Marine Corps-Law Enforcement Foundation
Mission: To encourage the spiritual, moral, intellectual and physical development of children through education.

This Foundation was formed in February 1995 by former Marines and law enforcement personnel who strongly believe that our nation’s most precious resource is its youth. This assistance has had a positive, life-changing effect on many, many children. We are thankful for the commitment and support of our many members and volunteers. Because of their dedication, no administrative costs of any type are charged to our Foundation. One hundred percent of the donations received is used to fund programs for the children we serve.
