The Marine Raider Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides benevolent support to active duty and medically retired MARSOC Raiders and their families, as well as to the families of Raiders who have lost their lives in service to our Nation. Since standing up in May of 2012, the Marine Raider Foundation has provided over $2.1 million in support to MARSOC Marines, Sailors and their families. The Foundation aims to meet needs unmet by the government with an emphasis on building personal and family resiliency and supporting the full reintegration of MARSOC personnel following wounds, injuries and extended deployments. The Marine Raider Foundation’s four main programs are: · Raider Support, including transition assistance, funding for award ceremonies and receptions, and funding for events that focus on personal and professional resiliency; · Family Resiliency Support, including assisting Raider families experiencing health and welfare challenges and with events that enhance personal and family resiliency; · Tragedy Assistance & Survivor Support, including assistance for wounded, ill and injured Raiders, Gold Star Families and funeral services and commemorations for MARSOC personnel; · Raider Legacy & Preservation Support, including construction and upkeep of memorial structures and commemorative items, as well as funding for events that commemorate WWII and MARSOC Raiders.
