Each year our MSACP volunteers donate thousands of hours to causes big and small in our military community and in the communities that surround Camp Pendleton.



In 2017, the MSACP awarded $43,000 in grants to 25 non-profit organizations that support our military service members and families here at Camp Pendleton.  Our grant funds impacted 8134 youth and 4629 adults (military families)! 

In 2017, the MSACP awarded $40,000 in scholarships to military dependent children and spouses pursuing advanced degrees!

The Military Spouse Association of Camp Pendleton is a 501c3 charity.  Each year, the MSACP raises funds to provide scholarships for children and spouses of active duty, retired, and deceased members of our Marine Corps and Navy, stationed aboard or living near Camp Pendleton through our Military Dependent Scholarship Program.


The MSACP's Community Enrichment Grant Program awards grants to local, non-profit organizations and projects that support our military community.   We raise these funds through our annual Margaritaville Benefit Auction and Gala, now in its 20th year!  It’s an event that takes dozens of volunteers and hundreds of volunteer hours to organize each year!  All proceeds from the auction directly fund our scholarship and community grants programs.

This year, we were thrilled to be able to award $83,000 in scholarships and grants to worthy military dependents and organizational recipients!
