First Command Educational Foundation (FCEF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity dedicated to improving financial readiness through education and scholarship opportunities. FCEF has been providing its services since 1983.
FCEF’s primary focus is on programs and resources for America’s military servicemembers and civilian federal employees, and their families. Our services also extend to schools and community organizations who share the values and aspirations of our core constituents.
For its November 9, 2019, football game against Baylor University, TCU in Fort Worth is offering a Heroes’ Day discount to active duty members, veterans, 1st responders, and their families. Follow the link on the flyer (gofrogs.com/heroes) for $30 discounted tickets to the game. Any service member or veteran who would like to hold the flag or stand on the sidelines during the National Anthem (you may see your smiling face on the video board) may volunteer by contacting Montel Gardner at TCU (firstname.lastname@example.org or 817-257-4198). TCU is also working on other events for the day. Go Frogs!
