Our Mission is Crucial. Our Duty is Clear.
Semper Fi Fund provides immediate financial assistance and lifetime support to post-9/11 combat wounded, critically ill and catastrophically injured members of all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families. We deliver the resources they need during recovery and transition back to their communities, working to ensure no one is left behind.
Since establishing the Semper Fi Fund in 2004, we've issued 149,000 grants, totaling more than $160 million in assistance to over 19,500 of our heroes and their families.
How We Help
Qualifying post-9/11 Marines, Sailors, Soldiers, Airmen, Coast Guardsmen, and reservists with amputations, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injury (TBI), severe post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), burns, blindness, other physical injuries, or those suffering from life-threatening illnesses. We also help spouses and children of active duty service members who face a life-threatening illness or injury.
How We Are Unique
The Semper Fi Fund has been awarded the highest ratings from watchdog groups: an A+ from CharityWatch - only one of two veteran nonprofits to receive this rating last year - and seven consecutive "4-star" ratings from Charity Navigator, an achievement attained by only 3% of rated charities.
We maintain an extremely low overhead, and we provide rapid assistance with no red tape.
The basic ideal that drives our efforts is simple: for as much as our heroes have sacrificed, they deserve the best care and support available in their hour of need. We are committed to being there at the time of injury or illness and for a lifetime if needed.
