Charity Navigator CEO Congratulates FEEA on its New 4-star Rating!

We are pleased to announce we have just received a 4-star rating again this year from the independent rating agency, Charity Navigator!

A letter from their president and CEO, Michael Thatcher, congratulated FEEA and said:

“We are proud to announce that the Federal Employee Education & Assistance Fund has earned our second consecutive 4-star rating. This is our highest possible rating and indicates that your organization adheres to best practices and executes its mission in a financially efficient way. Attaining a 4-star rating verifies that FEEA exceeds industry standards and outperforms most charities in your area of work. Only 25% of the charities we evaluate have received at least 2 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that FEEA outperforms most other charities in America. This exceptional designation from Charity Navigator sets FEEA apart from its peers and demonstrates to the public its trustworthiness.”

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. FEEA also has a for-profit subsidiary, FEEA Childcare Services, which administers childcare subsidy programs on behalf of a number of federal agencies. Since 1986, FEEA has supported more than 50,000 federal families with emergency loans, disaster grants, scholarships, and childcare subsidies.
