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. 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, disaster recover grants, emergency no-fee, no interest loans, and information programs all to help families get back on their feet. During COVID-19 we are providing additional emergency assistance programs to those who are sick with COVID, have an immediate family member who passes away from COVID, or to the families of a federal employee who passes away from COVID. We are also offering free tutoring to children of federal employees who are falling behind in school where the parent earns under $100,000.

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.
