We are P.R.O.U.D.
Please Remember Our Unwavering Devotion
The Navy Marine Corps P.R.O.U.D. Foundation is a nonprofit organization providing financial and in-kind support to San Diego County’s Navy Marine Corps Relief Society programs & local active duty Sailors, Marines, Veterans, Retirees and their families in need.
Military personnel will deploy for an average of 6-18 months even during peaceful times. They will often miss birthdays, anniversaries and holidays to serve our country.
There has been an increase of dual-military relationships, roughly accounting for 85,000 dual-military couples currently serving in the U.S. This means double the deployments and double the moves.
Military families relocate 10 times more often than civilian families, averaging out to one move every 2-3 years. These moves are often demanding on emotional and financial levels for the entire family.
Cathe Robling, PROUD Foundation Board President
As we move into 2023, The Navy Marine Corps P.R.O.U.D. Foundation is ready to provide rapid financial support to our San Diego military community to help them thrive. If you have supported PROUD Foundation as a volunteer or donor, thank you for stepping up to help those who defend our freedom. If you want to assist us in our mission, please look at our volunteer and fundraising opportunities.
I hope you all have a great start to 2023 and know PROUD Foundation is here to serve those who serve us.

Some of our success stories
“Within a matter of hours our sailor received financial assistance.”
The Miramar office recently reached out to PROUD regarding a sailor who was in a bind. Within a matter of hours, our sailor received the financial assistance she needed. PROUD is committed to helping our service members.

“What a true relief you provide.”
With the rising costs of food and gas the gift cards from P.R.O.U.D. have truly been a blessing to Marines and Sailors who are struggling financially under our current US inflation rates. What a true relief you provide and for that we are grateful!Donna Miranda, Director, NMCRS Camp Pendleton North
“I didn’t think twice about calling PROUD Foundation for help.”
I am grateful to PROUD Foundation! When we realized NMCRS assistance for my client would be limited due to their type of reserve orders I didn't think twice and immediately called PROUD who partnered with us to fully meet their needs.

“I’m so grateful they were able to help.”
We truly appreciate the gift cards and the assistance that PROUD has provided to service members. I'm so grateful they were able to help in the 29 Palms case. PROUD was the first organization I thought of when the Director called me looking for any help I could provide.
