Since its founding in 1980, the Marine Corps University Foundation has provided substantial intellectual and financial resources to the Marine Corps University to equip Marines with the critical thinking skills that will enable them to achieve success throughout their careers in the Marine Corps and in any number of other career paths they may pursue. Given the University's finite resources, the Foundation raises funds to attract the leading minds in security studies, terrorism, warfighting, emerging states and defense policy to Quantico, so that they may educate active-duty Marines on critical geostrategic matters. Marines then apply this knowledge in conflict zones around the world.
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.
