Educating the Children of Those Who Sacrificed All

Our Mission

To encourage the spiritual, moral, intellectual and physical development of children through education. Formed in February 1995 by former Marines and law enforcement personnel, we strongly believe that our Nation’s most precious resource is its youth.

Our Story

MC-LEF provides scholarships to the children of fallen United States Marines and Federal Law Enforcement Officers (FLEO).

Since 1995, the Foundation has provided over $75,000,000 in assistance and support to the families of our nation’s fallen heroes, with over $1,400,000 in support to Arizona children and military families since our inception in 2005.

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 FLEO.

Please consider joining us as a sponsor, donor, or participant at one of our upcoming events!

MC-LEF is an approved IRS 501(c)3 organization that has been recognized for our excellence and efficiency by the Independent Charities of America. With only one paid employee, working only part-time, and a full network of over 65 volunteers, all donations to MC-LEF go directly to fund our mission.
