Financial Support to the Bradley T. Arms Detachment # 1256 of the Marine Corps League


The Detachment welcomes donations to support our programs and mission.  We also conduct fundraising activities for financial support.  

The detachment is incorporated under the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia and is a subsidiary of the nationally chartered Marine Corps League, Inc. which reports to the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(4) organization under Group Exemption Number (GEN) 0955. Contributions to the Bradley T. Arms Detachment #1256 are therefore tax deductible as specified in Section 170 of the IRS Tax Code.
