- More Officials Dock Their Pay in Solidarity With Feds -- FEEA to Benefit - April 5, 2013
Government Executive Reports Leaders Donating to FEEA
As an FMA member, you should know that FMA's National President, Patricia Niehaus, sits on the board of the Federal Employee Education & Assistance Fund, better known as FEEA. FEEA is the only non-profit organization devoted solely to helping civilian federal and postal employees. I thought you would be interested in this story reported in Government Executive noting an increasing number of officials volunteering to donate a portion of their pay to show solidarity with federal employees who are facing furloughs and continued pay freezes. I am pleased to say that many of them are choosing to give their donations to FEEA.
Please read the Government Executive article here.
While this may be a small gesture, it is good to see leaders showing solidarity with federal employees -- especially since FEEA, a charity FMA has long supported, and through which we run the FMA-FEEA Scholarship Program, is the beneficiary.

Thank you for all you do each and every day!
