About FCEF

First Command Educational Foundation (FCEF) was founded in 1983. As a nonprofit 501(c)(3) public charity, we help people achieve financial freedom through objective financial education, information, tools, and scholarships.  Our primary focus is America’s active and veteran service members, civilian federal employees, and their families. Our services also extend to organizations who share the values and aspirations of our core constituents.

FCEF provides financial readiness education at little or no cost across the nation. Military units, community and professional organizations, women’s causes, youth groups, high school students, economically at-risk populations, and other groups are among those benefiting from FCEF’s proven financial readiness curriculum.

FCEF’s scholarships broaden scholarship opportunities for men and women across the country regardless of heritage or financial circumstances. Developed and granted in partnership with community organizations such as military units, scouting, Rotary Clubs, public universities, and others; our scholarships are available to students who pursue undergraduate and graduate degrees, professional certifications, and trade school study.
