What we aim to solve

Our goal is to be there to support federal employees when they have a personal or family crisis, such as a medical issue or suffer from a natural disaster, and also to help them achieve their family educational goals, by providing survivor and merit based scholarships. We serve them, because they serve their fellow American citizens every day.

The Federal Employee Education and Assistance Fund (FEEA) is the only independent, nonprofit 501c3 organization devoted solely to providing emergency financial assistance and scholarships to our dedicated civilian federal and postal public servants and their families.

We offer scholarships, disaster recover grants, emergency no-fee, no interest loans, and information programs all to help families get back on their feet.

We have a seasoned staff of nonprofit professionals, excellent technology systems, dedicated volunteers, and a committed board of directors who help up design, fundraise, and assess our programs.

We are currently developing a series of new measures to review our reach across our target population (all federal civilian employees), and the impact our programming has on improving financial health and educational attainment.

Since our founding in 1986 we have given nearly 12,000 no interest, emergency loans to help make ends meet during personal tragedies (ex. health issue or loss of a loved one), given nearly 10,000 disaster relief grants for wildfires, tornadoes, floods, and other natural disasters, and given over 10,000 merit-based scholarships to federal public servants, their spouses, children, and grandchildren. We have also served over 100 children who lost a federal employee parent on the job during terrorist attacks.
