The Disaster Relief program is funded through philanthropic endeavors which are realized with monetary emergency grants made to the Marines or their families. The recipient of these emergency grants would be in a difficult position due to a natural disaster. The request for Disaster Relief must be vetted by a local Marine Corps League Detachment or Department before being forwarded to the Foundation President. The local Detachment or Department must submit to the Foundation President a completed" Disaster Relief Form" which is located under forms on the MCL Foundation WEB page. Completion of this form, along with the requested information which is submitted directly to the Foundation President will become time-sensitive. Upon approval from the Board of Directors, funds will be available for distribution within 48 hrs.
