MARSOC Foundation - May's GovX Mission Giveback recipient

It is a true team effort and we appreciate having GovX on board to keep us mission-ready and able to support the the MARSOC community when help is needed. - Sarah Christian, Director of Operations

GovX, the online shopping site exclusively for current and former military and first responders, announced MARSOC Foundation as May’s recipient of the Mission Giveback program. The monthly program allows GovX members to vote on four different service-related causes, foundations, or nonprofits performing work or support among military, first responder, and/or law enforcement communities. Whichever cause tallies the most votes at the end of each month receives a portion of GovX proceeds from all orders placed in the following month.

MARSOC Foundation earned the most votes from GovX members at the conclusion of April voting. MARSOC, or US Marine Corps Special Operations Command, is the USMC element of SOCOM, the Special Forces umbrella of the US military. This 501(c)(3) nonprofit was established to provide benevolent support to active duty and medically retired MARSOC personnel and their families as well as to the families of Marines and Sailors who have lost their lives in service to the nation. The Foundation aims to meet needs unmet by the government with an emphasis on building personal and family resiliency and supporting the full reintegration of MARSOC Marines and Sailors following wounds, injuries and extended deployments.

"The MARSOC Foundation is honored to be the recipient of GovX’s Mission Giveback for May,” said Sarah Christian, Director of Operations. “We’ve been able to provide over $1.2 million since standing up in May of 2012 thanks to our donors, fundraisers and advocates – it is a true team effort and we appreciate having GovX on board to keep us mission-ready and able to support the MARSOC community when help is needed.”

“Here at GovX, we’re proud to support every warfighter,” said GovX CEO Eric McCue. “We’ve had the pleasure of meeting Marines all over our hometown of San Diego, so to be able to give back to the MARSOC Foundation and the families of the warriors they support is a special privilege.”
