“We don’t make friends.

We grow family.”


The Captain Teresa Elders Foundation is a 501(c)(3) that honors the life and accomplishments of Teresa Elders McCue.


We are a not-for-profit established to further the goals and charities that Teresa supported during her life and to honor those who came before by inspiring those who come after.

The foundation provides donations aimed at encouraging women from young to old in family, service, and faith. Our efforts include programming support, scholarships, and angel donating to ensure others have the opportunities and services that Teresa herself benefited from and that she wanted to help others attain.

In 2020, the recipients are:

- Nine Girls Ask (for a cure for ovarian cancer)

- National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC)

- New Jersey Distinguished Young Women (formerly America’s Junior Miss; Teresa was Junior Miss New Jersey in 1992)

- First United Methodist Church Chula Vista Children’s Ministry
