Philadelphia Campaign

The Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation is proud to have served as a source of consistency and comfort for Marine families since 1962. Since our founding over 60 years ago we have never turned an eligible applicant away, awarding over 50,000 scholarships valued at $185,000,000 to the children of Marines and Navy Corpsmen attending post-high school, undergraduate and career technical education programs across the nation.

As an investor in the Philadelphia Campaign, we invite you to be our complimentary guests at this year’s 48th Annual Philadelphia Campaign Celebratory Ball, to be held on Friday, April 21, 2023. The evening will include the presentation of the Semper Fidelis Award to our honoree, William McSwain. Bill is a veteran Marine and currently a partner at Duane Morris, LLP. He is the former United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania and a former candidate for Governor of Pennsylvania.

It will be an event not to be missed!
