Our Mission Statement

Marine Corps University Foundation Mission Statement

The Marine Corps University Foundation underwrites the education and training of active-duty Marines across the globe – from financial support for professional military education programs for operational units worldwide to the recruitment of leading experts to train Marines in Quantico, and much more.

Helping Our Heroes Prepare for Tomorrow

The MCU Foundation has harnessed the power of the private sector in support of the Marine Corps’ most pressing educational needs.

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 and enhance professional military education focus on:

  •  Strengthening the Marine Corps University’s position of thought leadership in military studies and national security affairs
  • Cultivating the problem-solving skills that enable Marines to think creatively and act decisively in uncertain environments; and
  • Developing the most knowledgeable, well-rounded, forward-thinking leaders, from Corporal to General.

The Marine Corps University Foundation Supports:

  • University President’s Fund
  • The Krulak Center
  • Center for Security Studies
  • Wargaming Senior Mentors
  • Battlefield Studies & Unit PME
  • Commanders Programs
