MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF OUR HEROES

The Detroit Area Marines Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Donations received contribute directly to supporting veterans, active-duty service members, and their families located in the Metro Detroit area.

OUR CONTRIBUTIONS 

HOW WE help veterans and their families

FUNDRAISING & EVENTS

We fundraise through various events such as gun raffles, golf tournaments, and gala dinners with the aim to provide financial support and resources to veterans and other nonprofits.

SUPPORTING OTHER NONPROFITS

The Detroit Area Marines Foundation recently expanded our mission to include supporting other veteran-focused nonprofits that align with our mission and provide direct services.

MILITARY HONOR SCHOLARSHIPS

The DAM is proud to support the spouses and dependents of active, reserve, or retired military members. 2023 saw the most entries we've ever had and we are proud to have donated four $500 scholarships!

LEADING BY EXAMPLE

We strive to ensure that our support of military ceremonies and traditions provides inspiration to future generations of military members while honoring prior service and retired servicemembers.
