About MCUF

Supporting the Professional Military Education of active duty and reserve Marines of all ranks for nearly four decades!

For over 30 years, the Marine Corps University Foundation has harnessed the power of the private sector in support of the Marine Corps’ most pressing educational needs.

Given the Marine Corps University’s finite resources, the Marine Corps University Foundation raises funds to attract the leading minds in security studies, terrorism, warfighting, emerging states, and defense policy to Quantico, so that they may educate active-duty Marines on critical geostrategic matters.  Marines then apply this knowledge in conflict zones around the world.

 

Our support has made professional military education more responsive to changes in the nature of conflict and brought a level of professionalism in faculty and diversity in perspective not attainable solely through appropriated government funding.

Today, our enduring efforts to enrich & enhance professional military education focus on:

  • Strengthening the Marine Corps University’s position of thought leadership in military studies & national security affairs;
  • Cultivating the problem-solving skills that enable Marines to think creatively & act decisively in uncertain environments; and
  • Developing the most knowledgeable, well-rounded, forward-thinking leaders … from Corporal to General.
Your tax deductible gift supports the fact that Freedom is not free.

Cultivating the problem-solving skills that enable Marines to think creatively & act decisively in uncertain environments through MCUF enhanced Professional Military Education. Your support to MCUF supports and reinforces that Freedom is not free.

The Marine Corps University Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization relying on tax deductible gifts, is the only Marine Corps charity solely dedicated to supporting the Professional Military Education (PME) of Active Duty and Reserve Officer and Enlisted Marines at the Marine Corps University and throughout the Operating Forces. The Marine Corps University leadership’s vision has been twofold – to prepare Marines at all levels to address complex security challenges in a rapidly transforming world through an unparalleled education in security and warfighting studies, and to groom the next generation of decision makers within the Marine Corps, government, and the private sector, equipping them with the critical thinking skills that will enable them to achieve success in any number of career paths. The Marine Corps University Foundation relies on tax-exempt contributions from those who support Marine Corps causes, including Corporate Members, Marine friends, former Marines helping Marines, and donations in memory or in honor of someone special. We are grateful for your tax-deductible donation to support the Professional Military Education of active duty Marines. Semper Fi!
