As a 501(c)(3) non-profit, the MARSOC Foundation provides benevolent support to the U. S. Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command (MARSOC). The Foundation supports active duty and medically retired MARSOC personnel and their families, as well as the families of Marines who have lost their lives in service to our Nation. MARSOC Foundation services are those unmet by the government or other organizations.
The MARSOC Foundation stood up in late 2011 and to date, has provided over $112,000 in support to Marine Special Operations Command (MARSOC) Marines, Sailors and their families. The Foundation's mission includes:
We support spouse and children participation in reintegration activities for MARSOC personnel returning from combat and contingency operations, Veteran Affairs disability claims, and career transition events.
We support funeral services and commemorations for MARSOC personnel, travel costs to funeral services and commemorations not covered by the Department of Defense, and construction and upkeep of memorials.
We support MARSOC personnel injured or wounded in combat, contingency operations, or training with their special needs. We help fund advanced rehabilitation, operational health and performance programs and equipment, and
advanced vocational training.
We support the families of MARSOC personnel with funding for medical treatments not provided by the government, advocacy and services for children with special needs, and childcare and emergency services when the spouse of a deployed service member is unable to care for the children.
