C. Forbes, Inc. is proud to once again play a role in honoring the recipients of the Marine Corps – Law Enforcement Foundation Commandant’s Leadership Award. The custom awards were presented April 22, 2015 at the 20th Annual NYC Gala to Mr. Donald Trump and Colonel G.F. Robert Hanke, USMCR (Ret.). Both gentlemen have played a significant role in supporting our Marines and Federal Law Enforcement Officers.

The design of the award is similar to the MC-LEF seal, depicting the eagle, globe and anchor from the Marine Corps seal. The scales of justice represent the connection to Federal Law Enforcement. The award seal is presented on a wooden base with personalized plate.

We would like to encourage your support of this all volunteer organization by visiting their website.

The Marine Corps-Law Enforcement Foundation (MC-LEF) provides educational assistance to the children of fallen United States Marines and Federal Law Enforcement personnel. Since our founding in 1995, MC-LEF has awarded over $63 million in scholarships and other humanitarian assistance, and supported over 3,500 children.

MC-LEF relies on the commitment of volunteers and generous donors across the country, who organize events, provide financial support and recruit others to our cause. With only one part-time employee, MC-LEF is sustained by a network of people who believe that the brave men and women who protect our country and our communities deserve to have their families protected as well.

Thanks to our generous donors, MC-LEF is currently able to provide a $30,000 scholarship account for every child who loses a parent serving in the United States Marine Corps or any Federal Law Enforcement agency. In recent years, we have expanded our mission to provide medical equipment and financial support to catastrophically wounded Marines, as well as, financial support for mentally or physically disabled children of active duty Marines. In the past, MC-LEF has also aided the children of other military personnel who perished in terrorist attacks and in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

MC-LEF is an approved IRS 501(c) 3 organization that has been recognized for its excellence and efficiency by the Independent Charities of America. 98% of all donations to MC-LEF go directly to fund our mission. Although MC-LEF is immensely proud of our work to date, there is still much to be done to support the families of America’s Marines and Federal Law Enforcement personnel.
