Our Mission

The Coast Guard Foundation is committed to ensuring all Coast Guard members and families have the resources they need to build resilience throughout their lives.

Founded in 1969, we're a vital partner to the U.S. Coast Guard tackling the toughest challenges confronting our heroes.

We're there for members from enlistment to long after retirement, and our work strengthens the entire community. Through close collaboration with Coast Guard leadership, we're able to respond to new and emerging needs effectively. Our investments support families, bolster unit morale, honor the Coast Guard's mission at the national level, and more.

Every day, Coast Guard members risk their lives to protect our country. When we stand together and show them our appreciation, we can ensure they remain always ready no matter what.
