The Coast Guard Foundation supports many programs and projects through donations from individuals, corporations, grants and fundraising events. We provide college scholarships to dependents of enlisted personnel on active duty, who are retired, or serving in the reserves. The Foundation funds recreational and family-oriented facilities, and supports education and morale programs at bases and on ships around the nation.
In times of loss, we offer financial relief to Coast Guard families who lose their possessions in natural disasters. When Coast Guard families suffer the ultimate loss, losing a loved one in the line of duty, the Foundation provides scholarship and relief funds to support the families during their most trying times.
The Foundation supports academic, athletic and leadership excellence for cadets at the United States Coast Guard Academy.
The Foundation supports the Coast Guard Auxiliary, the volunteer arm of the service, providing units with critical funding for boating safety and mission critical support.
As we enter our fifth decade, the Coast Guard Foundation hopes to expand our reach by increasing our profile across the country. We are following a bold strategic plan that strives to boost our endowments, our individual donor base, and our annual giving program. Our goal is to increase the amount of support for the men and women of the Coast Guard, and to do so in a way that reflects the honor and integrity of those who serve in the uniform.
