Worldwide, we continue to navigate the challenges and effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. At FCP Euro, we are grateful to advocate and help support those around us. As Memorial Day approaches, we are especially beholden for our servicemen and women, their efforts and sacrifices, and their families.
Update - 6/3/2021 - We are proud to say that together, the FCP Euro community raised $50,200 for the PenFed Foundation throughout Memorial Day Weekend. We want to extend a sincere thank you to those that contributed and helped spread the word. If you would like to join us with your own donation, you can find links below to contribute directly to the PenFed Foundation.
For a second year, this Memorial Day Weekend, FCP Euro will be donating 5% of all sales from Saturday, May 29th through Monday, May 31st to the PenFed Foundation with the goal of raising over $50,000. The PenFed foundation directly supports veterans and active service members by striving to provide them with financial stability. 2020's promotion was a tremendous success, hitting our goal of $40,000 total contributions from the weekend's sales.

“FCP Euro’s support this Memorial Day will help veterans and their families with much-needed assistance. We are grateful for this partnership during an important time of reflection and honoring our military heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice.” - General John W. Nicholson, Jr., USA Retired
Since 2001, the PenFed Foundation has provided more than $38.5 million in financial support to veterans, active duty service members, families, and caregivers. You can learn about all of their programs here.
The PenFed Foundation was the first national Veterans Service Organization (VSO) to launch its COVID-19 Relief Program for emergency financial assistance in March 2020. The response to the program has been overwhelming, with over 6,000 applications in the first four days.
The PenFed Foundation is in urgent need of donations to be able to continue supporting the financial stability and opportunity our military and veterans so greatly need and deserve.
