We have decided to cancel the 46th Annual Philadelphia Campaign Celebratory Ball. 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. We remain hopeful that better days are on the horizon and that we will all be happy and healthy when we gather on April 2, 2022 for the Philadelphia Campaign Celebratory Ball and to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation. It will be an event not to be missed!
While we will not be holding an event this year, the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation is still supporting more than 2,700 children of Marines with more than $8.5 million in scholarships during the 2020-21 academic year, and we’re proud to report that 84 of the recipients are from Pennsylvania. This is a record number of scholarships and we are committed to maintaining our promise to pay-out scholarship awards to 100% eligible applicants as they push forward with their educational plans, despite the current economic uncertainty due to the pandemic. Raising funds for these scholarships is more important now than ever as we expect the need to be even greater next year. If you have not already done so, please consider donating to our important mission.
Please don’t hesitate to contact Katie Gateau with any questions or concerns.
