Welcome to the website for the Clan Leatherneck Society & Foundation, a 501(c)3 charity.

From humble beginnings as an informal group of Marines stationed in Holy Loch, Scotland in the early 1960s to an incorporated non-profit, like our beloved Marine Corps, we have improvised, adapted, and overcome to become a national program.


Our mission:

To provide monetary aid to Marines in need while celebrating Celtic Heritage and Marine Corps Tradition.


What we do:

  • We provide small, one-time grants to Marines (includes Marine family members/survivors, and Corpsmen who served with Marine units).
  • We raise the funds to provide aid through donations and the sale of Clan Leatherneck logo coins, stickers, patches, shirts, and other items.
  • We raise awareness of Clan Leatherneck through attendance and participation at Celtic Festivals, Highland Games, Irish Festivals, parades, military appreciation and recognition events, and in the media.
  • We live by the motto, Semper Fidelis!


None of the officers or board of directors of the Clan Leatherneck Society & Foundation accept any pay or financial benefit.
