February is one of the most exciting and busiest months of the year at the Coast Guard Foundation with applications for scholarships and grants from Coast Guard families arriving every day.
Thousands of servicemember families have received our education assistance over the years. And the need we see for this important program grows year after year!
When you make your donation by February 28, you’ll ensure we can support as many spouses as we can when doubled by our generous supporter’s $25,000 match offer.
The opportunity to earn a college degree and professional certification is critical for Coast Guard spouses who need to contribute to their household income. With a degree and technical training, they can increase their employment prospects and provide for their family’s financial health.
U.S. Coast Guard families are transferred every few years, and with each move, children are enrolled in new schools, spouses search for new jobs, and the family adjusts to their new community.
This vital program delivers the opportunity for spouses to provide for their families and strengthen their well-being and communities.
