Mission Statement

The Marine Corps League Foundation accepts contributions and grants designated for scholarship and youth programs of the Marine Corps League. The bulk of the funds distributed annually are directed to the Scholarship program of the Marine Corps League. These scholarships are granted to the children and grandchildren of Marines who have lost their lives in service to their country and to children and grandchildren of members of the Marine Crops league and its Ladies Auxiliary.

The youth programs of the Marine Corps League includes the Young Marines of the Marine Corps League and the Marine Corps League Youth Physical Fitness Program which provides free fitness program guidelines to schools along with certificates of achievement and participation. The Youth Physical Fitness program is available for all grades. Both the Young Marines of the Marine Corps League and the League's Youth Physical Fitness programs have proven to be excellent drug prevention programs, with the Youth Physical Fitness program instilling an interest in a healthy body at a very early age. They Youth Physical Fitness Program also sponsors the Marine Corps National High School Physical Fitness Championships in conjunction with the U.S. Marines Youth Foundation.

The Marine Corps League Foundation also accepts contributions and grants to assist individual Marines and families of Marines who are in a difficult position due to circumstances beyond their control. The needs are verified by local Marine Corps League officials who often rally local Marine Crops League members to provide additional assistance as needed.
