A Message from PenFed Foundation on COVID-19

To all of our veterans and service members who have applied for the PenFed Foundation COVID19 emergency assistance program: The initial response to our program has been overwhelming with over 6000 applications in 4 days.  We appreciate your patience as we work through your applications and give each of them close attention.  We are doing our best to prioritize the most urgent needs that fall within the scope of our program.  Your combined requests exceed our current financial resources but we will award every dollar we have for this program and ask for more from our donors.

Thank you for sharing your needs with us. In addition to deploying our emergency financial assistance, it enables us to advocate on your behalf with the military leadership, with Veterans Service Organizations and donors. We will amplify your needs in this process to help you maintain or realize financial stability through this very trying time.
