As active duty and retired Raiders transition out of the military and approach their next mission in life, the Marine Raider Foundation provides them with the tools and assistance needed to ensure they succeed. We also fund awards and ceremonies that honor the accomplishments and achievements of Raiders, as well as events that encourage personal and professional growth.
Since standing up in May of 2012, the Marine Raider Foundation has provided over $1.9 million in funding to the Raider Support program. This funding has included:
- One-Time Transition Assistance Grants to help offset out-of-pocket costs associated with reentering the civilian sector, including purchasing professional work attire, travel related to seeking employment, certifications and other continuing education costs not covered by the GI Bill, and purchasing technological equipment needed for education and employment
- Funding to stand up The Honor Foundation’s MARSOC Campus in North Carolina
- Funding for commemorative events and ceremonies that celebrate excellence within the Marine Raider community, including Marine Raider symposiums, Individual Training Course Graduation, and awards ceremonies
