We're proud to once again support Semper Fi Fund's crucial mission in supporting those who've sacrificed so much in service to the Corps and their country. - Alan Cole, GovX CEO
SAN DIEGO, Calif. (PRWEB) March 16, 2018
GovX, the online shopping site exclusively for current and former military and first responders, selected the Semper Fi Fund as the newest recipient of the Mission Giveback donation program. Each month, GovX chooses a new, service-related foundation performing work in the military, first responder, or law enforcement communities and donates a portion of proceeds from orders placed during the given month. Semper Fi Fund will receive a donation based on orders placed during the month of March.
Founded in 2003 by Karen Guenther, alongside a group of other military spouses, the Fund's purpose is to provide immediate financial assistance and lifetime support to post-9/11 combat wounded, critically ill, and catastrophically injured members of every branch of the US Armed Forces and their families, ensuring that they have the resources needed to recover and transition back into their communities. In the years since their first official donation, the Semper Fi Fund has transformed the lives of thousands of wounded service members and their families, and relies on the support of hundreds of volunteers across the country.
Since their inception, the Semper Fi Fund has supported over 20,000 service members, providing over $162 million in the form of 155,000 grants. The Fund's focus on total care for service members includes housing assistance, caregiver support and retreats, transportation assistance, specialized adaptive equipment, service animals, and more. They also sponsor community athletic events sports around the country, raising funds and awareness for Semper Fi Fund through marathons, triathlons, cycling races, and more.
“The Semper Fi Fund is honored to have been selected as a GovX beneficiary,” said Karen Guenther, Founder, President and CEO of the Semper Fi Fund. The funds raised throughout March will help provide financial assistance and lifetime support to post-9/11 combat wounded, critically ill and catastrophically injured service members and their families. On behalf of everyone at Semper Fi Fund, and everyone we assist, I want to express our deepest gratitude to GovX and its customers for their support.”
"Here in our hometown of San Diego, we're always meeting men and women who have a connection to the Marine Corps," said Alan Cole, GovX CEO. "We're proud to once again support Semper Fi Fund's crucial mission in supporting those who've sacrificed so much in service to the Corps and their country."
