Coast Guard Foundation supports member families

The Coast Guard Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports the education and welfare of all U.S. Coast Guard members, is sending $250,000 to assist Coast Guard family members impacted by the government shutdown.

The federal work stoppage is the first time in U.S. history that service members in a U.S. armed force haven’t been paid.

“We are here to support the brave men and women of the United States Coast Guard, who continue to stand the watch during this challenging time,” Susan Ludwig, president of the U.S. Coast Guard Foundation, said in a statement. “While these funds will not cover the $150 million it takes to fund the service’s payroll, we can send our people to those continue to put their lives on the line every day and serve our nation with pride.”

The Coast Guard Foundation is partnering with the U.S. Coast Guard Chief Petty Officers Association to distribute the funds to members around the country.
