The Semper Fi Fund was created by a group of Marine Corps spouses, and those same women run the Fund today, alongside other spouses from all service branches, and retired service members, all of whom intimately know the needs of our military families.
Semper Fi Fund’s Mission Statement:
“Semper Fi Fund provides immediate financial assistance and lifetime support to combat wounded, critically ill and catastrophically injured members of all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families. We deliver the resources they need during recovery and transition back to their communities, working to ensure no one is left behind.”
They are by the side of our injured and ill service members from day one, helping them as they navigate lengthy recoveries and rejoin their communities. As of March 25, 2019, the Semper Fi Fund has distributed $191 million since 2004, have issued 187,000 grants and have helped 23,000 heroes.
“The Semper Fi Fund provides urgently needed resources and lifetime support for combat wounded, critically ill and catastrophically injured members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families. Case Managers from the Fund work one-on-one with service members and veterans to understand and support their individual needs right now and throughout their lifetimes.
The Fund keeps its overhead extremely low in order to have the greatest impact on the lives of service members and veterans and has been awarded the highest ratings from watchdog groups: A+ from CharityWatch (one of only two veteran nonprofits to receive this rating last year), eight consecutive 4-star ratings from Charity Navigator (an achievement attained by only 3% of rated charities) and the Platinum Seal of Transparency from GuideStar.”

For as much as our heroes have sacrificed, they deserve the best care and support available in their hour of need. The Semper Fi Fund is committed to being there at the time of injury or illness and for a lifetime if needed.
