    Securing the American Dream

    The Pentagon Federal Credit Union Foundation (PenFed Foundation) is a national charity working to meet unmet needs of the military personnel and their families in the areas of financial literacy, housing and support for the wounded. They work to ensure that those who selflessly devote their lives to the defense of our country have the resources they need for a secure financial future. They seek to prevent medical emergencies turning into financial hardships for our nation’s defenders. They seek to partner with other organizations to have the greatest impact on meeting unmet needs. They strictly follow all IRS guidelines and provide transparency on how your contributions are used.

    • Pentagon Federal (PenFed) Credit Union covers the Foundation's labor and rental administrative expenses.
    • Support for their programs comes entirely from the private sector. Your support of the Military Heroes Golf Classic, the Night of Heroes Gala and corporations, foundation, military associations and thousands of individuals is what makes it possible to support our nation's heroes.
    • The PenFed Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) organization; donations are tax deductible to the extent allowable by law.

    The Pentagon Federal Credit Union Foundation is dedicated to assist the men and women and their immediate families in the Department of Defense and Homeland Security. This includes both uniform and non-uniform personnel. Their Military Heroes program provides support to those wounded in the war against terrorism. Given the large numbers of wounded and the long-term nature of their challenges, the government faces budget and logistical problems in meeting their needs. That’s where the Foundation steps in to help.

    Military personnel and their families face financial stress due to relatively low pay, extended deployments and combat injuries. Payday lenders target those in the military because they have regular paychecks and must pay their bills or risk losing their security clearances. The Asset Recovery Kit (ARK) gives no-interest emergency cash loans and free professional counseling to help solve money problems.

    Military families deserve their piece of the American Dream. They often cannot purchase a home, the cornerstone of this dream because of the high cost of housing. Dream Makers is a grant program which assists first-time home buyers of modest means who are in the service of our country’s national security. Equal Housing Opportunity.
