Whether it’s supporting Brian[1], who lost his dad at the Pentagon on 9-11, by paying for his college education, providing an emergency no-fee no-interest loan to Mandy, whose teenage son had to have emergency surgery, or giving a disaster relief grant to Jason after severe damage to his home from a tornado, FEEA is there for federal families.

2017 Walk/Run a Great Success

This year’s Public Service Charity Walk/Run was a huge success! FEEA raised over $75,000 in support of our programs and mission of serving federal employees. Thank you so much to all of our sponsors, walkers, runners, and volunteers for making the event an amazing triumph. We’ve put together a slide show of some of our favorite pictures which you can access right here on our website.

We’ve actually loaded up all of the photos from our photographer and also those that teams walking virtually outside of DC sent in to our Flikr page. We encourage you to tag us on Facebook and Twitter at @fedshelpingfeds if you share the pictures. If you ran or walked in the race in Anacostia Park you can also access your timing results here.

We’ve already started planning for next year’s Walk/Run. Stay tuned for more details soon and we hope to see you there!

We Have a New Look!

As we embark on our 31st year as the leading national charity supporting federal and postal employees and their families we have updated our logo to better represent the helping hand we have provided to over 50,000 families since 1986.

Our new logo was selected from over 150 submissions to a design contest we held recently and ultimately selected by a group federal employees, FEEA volunteers, board members, donors, staff, and nonprofit professionals.

FEEA is the only independent, national, nonprofit organization dedicated to federal civilian public servants. All FEEA’s programs, are made possible by our generous individual and organizational sponsors who donate directly and pledge to CFC #11185 each year.
