My husband was critically injured during the attack on the Pentagon on 9/11. Through the generosity of our fellow Federal employees, our daughter was able to attend an Ivy League University without the financial burden upon our famiiy. The leadership at FEEA and the supporting administrative staff always ensured that all our needs were met - and they did it with genuine care and affection.
Thank your FEEA!

As my son was nearing high school graduation we were approached with the ability to receive this scholarship as a result of his father's death (which occurred when he was a freshman in high school). We felt blessed that this extra assistance was there to help with the costs of his higher education, and that we did not have to "seek" it; we were notified of its existence.
It has always been easy contacting those involved when needed; my son transferred colleges mid-year, and we were easily able to get the necessary changes made, as FEEA's staff is very communicative and accommodating.
Many thanks for all you have done to assist my son in his higher education!

The Team at FEEAF has been super helpful, working with us as my kids navigated the college admissions process and worked their way through the bureaucratic maze of their first years of college. They've truly made dreams come true!

My world was shattered on 9/11/01 when my husband was killed while serving as a civilian for the Department of Defense. My children were in elementary school. We were devastated and worried about our future finances since I was a stay-at-home mother. FEEA was wonderful. While there were resources for military families and for NY families, the resources for federal civilians was limited. Thank goodness I learned about FEEA. I worked with the same case manager for the entire time that my children were in college. It's hard to believe that so many years have passed and that my children are now old enough, but I'm pleased to say that they are both college graduates. FEEA helped to ensure that they received what their father would have provided had he not been killed. I'm so grateful for FEEA for being there for us both financially as well as emotionally. My case worker became a pen-pal of sorts and was always incredibly compassionate and understanding. Thank you FEEA for helping us piece our lives back together.

The Federal Employee Education and Assistance Fund (FEEA) does a great job of quickly helping federal employees who encounter financial hardships. As a federal manager association, we remind our members to use FEEA as a tool to assist their employees stay focused on their work, rather than worrying about how they are going to pay bills after a serious hardship. Also, the FEEA Educational Scholarships have helped thousands of federal employees and their families afford the high costs of higher education. This is a great, professional organization that is only getting better each year!

As one of FEEA’s founders and a longtime member of its board of Directors, NTEU is proud to support the only charity devoted solely to helping federal employees in need. Year after year, we continue to see the difference that FEEA makes in the lives of federal employees caught up in a disaster or who need help paying for the ever-increasing costs of higher education. In addition to helping federal employees with problems big and small, FEEA continues to fulfill its promise of covering tuition, books, and room and board for every child who lost a federal parent to the Sept. 11 attacks or the Oklahoma City bombing. FEEA truly makes a difference in the lives of federal employees who do so much for our country.

I volunteered at FEEA’s 5K charity race because of the organization’s mission. FEEA is the only charity whose sole mission is to help the federal employees who help our country every day, in so many ways. Federal employees are often the first to help others in times of crises, but they can also be victims themselves. In fact, FEEA is right now helping federal employee victims of the recent hurricanes, some of whom answered the call to help their fellow Americans in the aftermath. I am proud to support FEEA and the hundreds of federal families they help each year.

FEEA is a terrific organization that provides disaster assistance to federal employees and their families, as well as merit based scholarships. I am a loyal donor and know that funds are going to a good cause. FEEA has provided scholarships to over 300 children of federal employees that were victims of the Oklahoma City bombing and 9/11. Annual scholarships are provided to deserving children of federal employees. Grant and loan assistance is being provided now to victims of the recent hurricanes. Their website details all of the information related to application.

FEEA, federal employees helping federal employees, distributes hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants, no interest loans, and scholarships to federal employees every year. The need is great, particularly with Harvey and Irma, and I am pleased to be a part of responding to those who serve and work for the federal government

They fail to tell people that temporary housing assistance is against their policy despite being an organization that is supposed to help with emergency assistance.

Im a federal employee and I had went to this organization which did not bother to help me. It seems like they want to make up an excuse of not assisting employees in dire situations and their employee had given me a useless advice, telling me to google resources. I will not donate a penny to this "charity".
