standards second to none

No matter the donation, when it comes to our donors’ money you’ll find no charity taking that responsibility more seriously. The way we see it; Americans expect the best from their Marines and you should expect no less from a donation to the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation.

What makes us different?


With the Eagle, Globe, and Anchor in our logo, we always hold ourselves to the highest standards of the Marine Corps. The result is an approach driven by donor intent and anchored in outcomes for Marines, their families, and America’s future. Like our Marines we’re able to do more with less thanks to standards second to none.
Making the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation:

  • A trusted investment; with top marks from leading charity watchdogs including an A+ from the Better Business Bureau, 4/4 stars for accountability and transparency from Charity Navigator, and GuideStar’s Platinum Seal of Transparency.
