NARFE-FEEA DISASTER FUND
NARFE Members Helping Each Other
In 1986, the Federal Employee Education & Assistance Fund (FEEA) was established to provide emergency grants and loans to federal employees affected by a natural disaster.
 
NARFE’s involvement with FEEA began following the April 19, 1995, bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. NARFE chapters, federations and individual members donated $100,000 to the FEEA’s Oklahoma City Fund. NARFE's Oklahoma City donation helped fund full college scholarships for all 200 children who lost a federal employee parent in the bombing of the Murrah Building.

In 1996, NARFE entered into a partnership with FEEA to provide emergency disaster assistance to NARFE members who are victims of a declared natural disaster through the NARFE-FEEA Disaster Fund. The Fund is supported by tax-deductible donations from NARFE members and friends of NARFE, and is administered by FEEA. NARFE members have donated some $458,000 in aid to NARFE members who were affected by Hurricane Katrina, Superstorm Sandy and other natural disasters. NARFE became a member of FEEA’s board of directors in 1997.

Cash Grants
NARFE disaster funds in the form of cash grants ($500 maximum per grant per household) are available to all NARFE members in good standing who have been injured, incurred property damage or have other needs during and after a declared natural disaster. 
 
To Donate
NARFE contributions are kept separate from FEEA’s own emergency assistance fund and are disbursed as needed to NARFE members whose applications are approved. To make a tax-deductible donation, checks should be made payable to NARFE-FEEA Disaster Fund and mailed to:
