The MCVA is proud of our many successful programs of assistance to Marines and other veterans.

Our Veterans Funeral Honors Assistance Program endeavors to assist chartered veterans organizations throughout the country by funding their efforts to provide dignified funeral services for fallen veterans. In the past few years alone, we were able to issue grants totaling $77,000 to numerous VFW and American Legion posts to help them provide dignified funeral services, especially for
our Greatest Generation from WWII.

The Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund, located at the Marine base at Camp Pendleton, California, has received MCVA donations of $53,000 - the largest donation from any veterans organization in America.

Fisher House at San Antonio Veterans Administration Hospital opened in the summer of 2012 to treat the most severely wounded from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Our donation to Fisher House San Antonio was $50,000. Bringing honor and recognition to all branches of the Armed Forces is one of the central programs of the MCVA. We gifted $192,000 of tokens with patriotic messages and emblems to tens of thousands of donors.

The MCVA supports the Marine Corps Association Foundation, publishers of the Leatherneck magazine. Our donations provide Leatherneck and Marine Corps Gazette magazines to convalescing soldiers and Marines at veterans’ hospitals all over the world throughout the year. We are the sole contributor to this program, and our recent donations total $9,000.



MCVA issued an $8,000 donation to the Montfort Point Marines in honor of their service to America during WWII.

We were proud to be a sponsor and a participant in the 2012 Annual Cinema City International Film Festival at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles. The MCVA sponsored an all- expenses paid trip for two Marines and a Navy Corpsman, and their guests. It was our way of saying “Thank you” to these brave men, all of whom were severely injured while serving our country in Iraq.

The MCVA makes donations to the Veterans Memorial Golf Tournament in Concord, California. The tournament has raised over $116,000 for the Polytrauma Unit in Palo Alto, California. At the Polytrauma Unit, the Association’s donations help pay for “Friday Night Dinners” for the patients suffering from brain injuries sustained in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as meals for their families.

We support the Pathway Home, located at the VA hospital in Yountville, California. Our donations have helped this program which aids returning veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. Government reports indicate that 1 in 3 of all returning veterans are impacted by PTSD, and that 18 veterans commit suicide each day.
