How Your Donation Helps
Attending the graduation ceremony for your newly-minted Marine is an experience every soon-to-be Marine parent would like to experience. However, some families cannot afford to attend their recruit's graduation. Travel expenses (airfare and hotel) vary widely depending on locations, but typically run approximately $650 per person and $1,000 for a couple traveling together. Awards for travel assistance DO NOT cover all expenses; the recipient will be required to pay expenses beyond the award.
Members from our Official Marine Parents Facebook Group for Oscar Company Parris Island Graduation 05-12-2023 have collectively decided to raise $1500 to help family members attend graduation at MCRD Parris Island. To date, we have collected $225 toward the agreed-upon goal. Your donation will be added to this goal amount.
All applicants to the MarineParents.com, Inc. Travel Assistance program are required to submit an application with financial records to verify significant need for travel assistance. For more information about the application criteria and process, see MarineParents.com/TA
