Dear Marine Corps Friends and Families,

The Heritage of San Clemente Foundation, founded in 1995, is a non-profit 501(c)(3). We built and currently maintain The Marine Monument, Park Semper Fi, located in San Clemente.

We have two adopted Marine Corps units: 2nd Battalion 4th Marines (The Magnificent Bastards) and HMLA 469 (Vengeance), Camp Pendleton. Both Units are on Deployment. Both Units total approximately 2,000 Marines and Sailors. We support both units by all types of family assistant programs, welcome home barbecues, Christmas parties, and Fourth Of July Fireworks pot-lucks at Park Semper Fi, overlooking the Pacific Ocean and San Clemente Pier. We also fund activities for their Families when they are on deployments.

We are raising funds for their welcome home celebrations in October and November. Funds will be used for barbecues, food, prizes, and gifts for children.

These celebrations mean so very much to them by showing them that their neighboring community cares for them and wishes to show their appreciation for their sacrifices to our country.

We will be most appreciative for your support and will thank you for your contributions. As a non-profit 501c3, your contribution is tax deductible.
