In addition to higher educations funding, if a child of a United States Marine is afflicted with a physical or mental disability and requires special medical equipment or tutoring, the foundation may grant financial assistance to the family if personal insurance does not cover the cost of treatment for the affected child. The foundation was created to encourage the spiritual, moral, intellectual and physical development of children through education. Formed in February 1995 by former Marines and law enforcement personnel, the foundation thus far has distributed aid with a value of more than $33,000,000 to eligible children through the continuous support of donors.
“Digital Check strives to give back to our society and continues to support a variety of charities across the nation,” said Tom Anderson, president and chief executive officer of Digital Check. “The Marine Corps Law Enforcement Foundation is a truly wonderful organization, and we are honored to contribute to the noble cause of providing education to children who have lost their parents while serving in the line of duty.”
“Our foundation has had a positive, life-changing effect on many children and has provided a bright future for those who have lost family serving our nation,” said Brian E. Gannon, a director of the Marine Corps Law Enforcement Foundation. “We are thankful for the generous donation Digital Check has made and appreciate their commitment and support.”
