On September 21, 2020, The PenFed Foundation joined over 75 community and business leaders to raise over $585,000 to support veterans and the military community at the 17th annual Military Heroes Golf Classic.
The PenFed Foundation is a national nonprofit organization that provides service members and veterans with the skills and resources they need to improve their lives. The organization has provided over $38.5 million in financial support to service members, veterans, their families, and support networks through financial education programs, homeownership, veteran entrepreneurship, and short-term assistance.
“We are especially proud to host the Golf Classic this year because today it’s even more critical to continue supporting our military heroes who have been on the frontlines and made incredible sacrifices for our nation,” said James Schenck, PenFed Credit Union President/CEO and PenFed Foundation CEO. “We can never fully repay our debt of gratitude to these brave service men and women – but we can provide them with the support and resources they need to help them live the lives they and their families deserve.”
In March, PenFed Foundation became the first national Veterans Service Organization to launch a COVID-19 relief program. The program provides emergency financial assistance for veterans and service members. The COVID-19 relief program has assisted more than 560 military heroes and their families.
