Semper Fi Fund directs urgently needed resources to post 9-11 Marines and Sailors, as well as members of the Army, Air Force or Coast Guard who serve in support of Marine forces. The Semper Fi Fund (SFF) provides relief for financial needs that arise during hospitalization and recovery as well as assistance for those with perpetuating needs. Their program provides support in a variety of ways including: Service Member and Family Support, Specialized & Adaptive Equipment, Adaptive Housing, Adaptive Transportation, Education and Career Transition Assistance, Therapeutic Arts and Team Semper Fi.
The streamlined structure of Semper Fi Fund keeps overhead very low – at 5% – because they realize every dollar saved can be put to better use elsewhere. The American Institute of Philanthropy has given them an “A+” rating and Charity Navigator has given their “Four Star” rating, the highest rating for each organization.
The basic ideal that drives their efforts is simple: as much as these American heroes have sacrificed, they deserve the best care and support available in their hour of need. Injuries are often severe, and the road to recovery or rehabilitation can be long and costly. Beyond the staggering costs of hospitalization and treatment, related expenses typically pile up quickly. Family members may lose income when taking time off work to visit and care for injured loved ones. Childcare, plane fare and other travel expenses often stretch a family’s budget to the breaking point.
Since establishing this fund in 2004, Semper Fi Fund has issued more than 30,000 grants totaling more than $49.5 million to thousands of our heroes and their families. Clearly, the program is working. But their challenges are actually increasing, especially due to the level of severe trauma sustained in areas like Afghanistan and Iraq. Help the Semper Fi Fund help those who have given so much in the name of freedom.
