During the giving season many focus on practical gifts, while others focus on giving with meaning. At the Coast Guard Foundation we offer practical and needed support to Coast Guard members. At the same time, we understand that this support has tremendous meaning to the families who receive it. A scholarship not only pays the bills, it is a recognition of the challenges of growing up as a military child. A grant to recover from a hurricane not only replaces damaged homes and household items, it thanks service members for helping their communities, even while they too have suffered loss.
Knowing that gifts can be practical and meaningful, we hope you will participate in our special year-end offer by purchasing a Run to Remember T-shirt at a special price of only $15. When you purchase your T-shirt before Dec. 31, we’ll include five unique Coast Guard Foundation notecards as a gift to you.
The Run to Remember is a worldwide movement that honors Coast Guard heroes who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service of their country. Each year, thousands of supporters participate in road races, memorial walks, and other types of fitness events to pay tribute to the lost members of the service.
When Coast Guard families or units face the loss of an active-duty member, the Coast Guard Foundation is there with immediate financial and morale support. We listen closely to individuals and families – and anticipate their needs – to ensure we provide relevant care in the wake of tragedy.
Your support ensures the Foundation is there to support the families of fallen Coast Guard members where and when they need it most.
Thanks to the generosity of our 2021 Run to Remember corporate sponsor – Leidos – all proceeds from this year's T-shirt sales benefit the families of fallen Coast Guard members.
