We are Grateful for Our Corporate Champions

The MCSF is grateful for the support of our Corporate Champions who consider the MCSF a powerful way to support the families of those who have served our Nation. The support of these companies makes a dramatic life-changing impact for the children of Marines and Navy Corpsmen.



“My father served in the Marine Corps in Force Reconnaissance. Dad raised me with Marine principles like, “there is no can’t.” I am so grateful for my scholarship award from the MCSF, which has helped make it possible for me to graduate from the College of Charleston and Johns Hopkins University. I lost a friend to brain cancer which inspired me to pursue an MD at the University of Pittsburgh. I plan to run a translational brain tumor research lab that focuses on developing vaccines against brain cancer. Brain cancer is one of the deadliest diseases known to man, and there is a dramatic lack of resources for treatment in Africa. My research aims to prepare African countries to meet the future neurosurgical needs of their nation.”
