Thank you for your desire to become a Local Community Organization (LCO) Marine Toys for Tots Campaign Coordinator. We commend you for your wanting to help our Nation’s most precious resource, our children.

The Marine Toys for Tots Program is an official activity of the United States Marine Corps. As such, each of our over 800 local campaign coordinators is expected to execute their local campaigns to the highest standards of the Marine Corps.

Before completing this application, we ask that you review the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) that details our Program and the expectations of the local campaign coordinators. You can find the document here: Marine Toys for Tots SOP. The 2024 SOP will be published O/A 1 July 2024.

We also ask that you reflect on the fiduciary responsibility between a coordinator and the Foundation. There is a tremendous amount of trust, especially dealing with toy and money donations, that is placed on a coordinator which he/she is solely responsible for. Finally, understand that being a coordinator is a fulfilling and rewarding experience, but it will be time consuming during the campaign season. Please factor that in as you complete the application.

Again, thank you for wanting to support your local community by becoming a Marine Toys for Tots Program Campaign Coordinator. Your support will ensure we reach our goal to help bring the joy of Christmas and send a message of hope to America’s less fortunate children.
