Did You Know?
Since first partnering in 1995, NARFE and FEEA have given out more than $1,000,000 to NARFE members and their families.
Following Timothy McVeigh’s heartbreaking attack on the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City on April 19, 1995, NARFE chapters, federations and individual members donated $100,000 to FEEA’s Oklahoma City Fund. This sizable contribution was one of the largest consolidated donations FEEA had ever received. With this gift and many more, FEEA was able to fund full-tuition scholarships for all 200 children who lost a federal employee parent in the Oklahoma City tragedy.
In 1996, NARFE board members set up a NARFE-FEEA Disaster Fund supported by tax-deductible donations from NARFE members, so that FEEA could provide emergency disaster assistance to NARFE members. NARFE became a member of FEEA’s board of directors in 1997, and the following year NARFE’s executive board authorized the creation of a scholarship fund open to the children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and stepchildren of NARFE members.
