Memorial Foundation

What is the Memorial Foundation?

Part of being an Eagle is supporting our brothers and sisters when times get tough. The Memorial Foundation was created to help provide medical and educational benefits to children of members who lose their lives while serving their country or while at work. As an Eagle in good standing, you and your family are automatically protected by this unprecedented safety net.

Your children will have a greater opportunity to attend college or vocational school and receive various forms of medical assistance.

What are the educational benefits?

Educational grants can be used for college or post-secondary institutions such as business, beauty, nursing or other technical/trade schools. Online college tuition may also be reimbursed. Grants are to defray the cost of tuition, fees, books and course-related supplies. Room and board and meal plans are not included. Payment is made directly to the college, university or institution upon receipt of official school and/or bookstore statements.

Grant forms must be completed each year along with a transcript. Recipients must maintain a 2.0 grade point average and must be under the age of 25, unmarried and non-self supporting.

When does the assistance stop?

Eligibility for medical assistance ceases on the child's 18th birthday or before if he or she becomes married or self-supporting. No benefits will be paid for any injury or illness resulting from the unlawful use of drugs, the commission or attempt to commit a crime, any self-inflicted injury, elective cosmetic surgery or pregnancy of the Foundation child.
