We have decided to cancel the Chicago Dinner for the Children of Severely Injured previously scheduled for Monday, October 5, 2020. We thank you for your understanding as the health, safety, and welfare of our students, investors, and staff are our first and foremost concerns. We hope you will still consider supporting our important mission. Please don’t hesitate to contact Kari Riordan at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns.
The annual Chicago Dinner for the Children of the Severely Injured is the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation’s signature event. Held annually in the Windy City, the Chicago Dinner Committee has made a promise to ensure that every child of a severely injured Marine or Navy Corpsman has the opportunity to pursue the American dream their parents served to defend.
Chicago Dinner Sponsorship Levels
By providing $30,000 in scholarship funding to every eligible child, we aim to alleviate the financial pressure these families face as they pursue their dream of a post-secondary education for their children. We estimate 1,000 children will require our support over the next twenty years. To meet this demand, we must raise $30 million.
Significant progress has been made in achieving this goal:
$16.8 million of our $30 million goal has been raised.
$830,000 in scholarships was awarded to 107 recipients in the 2019-20 academic year alone.
1,218 eligible families have been identified, and 560 children contacted.
