The FEW Foundation for Education and Training (Foundation) (FFET) was established in 2004 as the 501(c)(3) charitable arm of the Federally Employed Women (FEW) membership organization. The Foundation's purpose was to raise funds for scholarships at the National Training Programs for federally employed women. Since FEW is a 501(c)(4) organization, the idea of having a 501(c)(3) charitable arm to secure tax-deductable donations has been very beneficial to FEW members.
The Board of Trustees consists of nine (9) FEW members. A Council of Advisors was later established to bring in outside private sector experience and contacts for fundraising and academia.
The Foundation partners with Grantham University to offer scholarships to FEW members, their spouses and partners, and their dependent children. The scholarships have afforded a significant number of FEW members the career-changing opportunity to complete their college educations. Another educational partner with the Foundation is Ed2Go, who provides online classes on a flexible schedule and at affordable rates.
Scholarship funding is available to support any of the ten (10) Regional Training Programs.
As part of the Foundation's fundraising activities, they partner with the Amazon Associates, Avon, and TerriLynn snacks, in addition to various other fundraising activities.
In consideration of the Foundation's tax-exempt status, financial donations are received and used for the various scholarship programs and in support of the overall budget. If you are interested in making a monetary contribution, please email our President at FEWFoundation@FEW.org for complete details. The Treasurer will provide a receipt for your tax-deductable donation.
