The Laguna Niguel Military Support Committee (“LNMSC”) is the civilian fundraising arm for the military personnel and their families of the USS Stockdale, a guided missile destroyer home-ported in San Diego; the First Battalion, 4th Marine Regiment, based out of Camp Pendleton; and the 1st Assault Helicopter Battalion, 140th Aviation Regiment, a Blackhawk Combat Helicopter Battalion stationed at the Joint Forces Training Base in Los Alamitos. Our sponsored military units cannot ask for donations. As a result, the LNMSC conducts various fundraising activities that enable us to support our military service persons and their families throughout their service.
The Laguna Niguel Military Support Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation (Tax ID# 32-0241114), supports the activities and events of the Military Support Committee. The Foundation accepts donations on behalf of the Committee and disburses funds as needed to help accomplish the Committee’s mission. The men and women of our armed forces and their families often face unique challenges and needs. The Committee works closely with command-appointed liaisons from these units to determine their needs and how best to meet them.
