OUR ORGANIZATION, FORGED IN SUPPORT.
The Detroit Area Marines Foundation was founded in 2009 for the purpose of providing support to Marine Wing Support Squadron 471 - Detachment Bravo, located in Southeast Michigan. Utilizing fundraisers such as the Annual Golf Outing and Gun Raffle, we are able to provide assistance to local Marines, past and present, in times of need.
As of 2022, we've begun to expand outside of our original mission to include support for local veterans groups, nonprofits, and financial assistance.
HONORING OUR PRIOR SERVICE AND RETIRED MARINE CORPS VETERANS.
Our board members work hand-in-hand with our local Marine leaders to ensure that our efforts are utilized as efficiently as possible. Community involvement is at the forefront of our mission and 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 Marine Corps veterans.
