Semper Fi Fund Receives Grant From Wells Fargo Foundation

February 10th, 2012

The Semper Fi Fund is pleased to announce its gift of a $75,000 grant from the Wells Fargo Foundation, benefiting the Fund’s Semper Fi Odyssey transition program.

The Semper Fi Odyssey program is a six-day, holistic transition assistance event designed to provide critically ill and injured service members and Veterans an opportunity to learn how to transition into civilian life by learning about life planning skills, establishing goals, employment resources and learning to balance four important MEPS elements: Mental, Emotional, Physical and Spiritual.

The program is provided at no expense to the participants and is a collaborative effort to give back to those who preserve our freedom.

The Semper Fi Odyssey programs aligns with the values of the Wells Fargo Corporation which has received numerous awards and honors highlighting its unfailing support of our Veteran community.

“We are very thankful for Wells Fargo Foundation’s support of our mission and the Semper Fi Odyssey program,” said Karen Guenther, Founder and Executive Director of the Semper Fi Fund. “This grant will make a significant difference in the lives of our heroes as they transition from the hospital to home.”

The Semper Fi Fund provides immediate financial support and quality of life solutions to the injured and critically ill members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families. The Fund directs urgently needed resources to post 9-11 Marines and Sailors, as well as members of the Army, Air Force or Coast Guard who serve in support of Marine forces.

The organization provides support in a variety of ways including: Service Member and Family Support, Specialized & Adaptive Equipment, Adaptive Housing, Adaptive Transportation, Education and Career Transition Assistance, Therapeutic Arts and Team Semper Fi.
