COVID-19 Emergency Financial Relief Program

The PenFed Foundation was the first national Veterans Service Organization (VSO) to launch a COVID-19 relief program for emergency financial assistance. The response to our program was overwhelming with over 6,000 applications in 4 days.  We did our best to prioritize the most urgent needs that fall within the scope of our program and eventually succeeded in processing each and every application.  It has been an honor to assist more than 1,117 military heroes and we will continue to identify ways to provide financial support to veterans and service members during the pandemic.
