Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

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, as well as tutoring. We serve them, because they serve their fellow American citizens every day.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

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, tutoring, disaster recovery grants, emergency no-fee, no interest loans, and information programs all to help families get back on their feet. When needed, we also offer financial assistance and other resources during government shutdowns to assist federal families not receiving paychecks.

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.

Since our founding in 1986 we have given nearly 13,000 no interest, emergency loans to help make ends meet during personal tragedies (ex. health issue or loss of a loved one), given nearly 14,000 disaster relief grants for wildfires, tornadoes, floods, and other natural disasters, as well as for groceries, fuel, and diapers during the longest government shutdown in U.S. history, given over 11,000 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. During the height of the pandemic, we assisted an additional 11,000 federal families with free cloth masks, online tutoring for K-12 kids, and grants to surviving family members who lost a federal employee spouse, parent, or child to COVID-19.
