Founded in 1904, the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society provides, in partnership with the Navy and Marine Corps, financial, educational and other forms of assistance to members of the Naval Services of the United States, eligible family members and survivors when in need.
They provide need-based financial assistance to eligible recipients through:
- Interest-free loans and grants
- Scholarships and interest-free loans for education
The NMCRS also provides the following services:
- Financial Counseling
- Budget for Baby Workshops
- Thrift Shops
- Visiting Nurse Services
There are more than 3,600 volunteers who work with service men and women to help improve the lives of those in need. And although they are officially sponsored by the Department of the Navy, NMCRS is a private non-profit organization whose programs are totally funded by charitable contributions.
Quicken Loans is proud to support the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society, helping our heroes who have sacrificed so much.
