How We Help Our Nation’s Heroes

The service. The commitments. The sacrifices. We value our military community.

To honor those who’ve served, the PenFed Foundation offers assistance through three distinct initiatives:

  1. Offering grants to eligible non-profit organizations.
  2. Assisting refugees who worked alongside U.S. Army women soldiers through the Army’s Cultural Support Team.
  3. Investing in veteran-owned and veteran-lead companies.
