TYSONS, Va., Sept. 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The PenFed Foundation, a national 501(c)3 founded by PenFed Credit Union, today announced it received a generous $100,000 donation from MidCountry Bank to empower military members, veterans and caregivers with financial stability and opportunity. The funds will be used to provide members of the military community with emergency financial assistance, help veterans achieve the dream of home ownership and support investments in veteran entrepreneurs.

"We are very thankful for the generosity of MidCountry Bank as we continue to support the military community during these challenging times," said PenFed Foundation President and retired U.S. Army Gen. John "Mick" Nicholson, Jr. "This donation helps us continue our work of ensuring service members are able to serve our nation free of financial worry and that veterans live with a strong financial future."

Steve Meads, MidCountry Bank President and CEO added, "MidCountry is grateful for the opportunity to support such an important cause, made even more crucial during the Pandemic.  As a community bank, we look for meaningful ways to give back. This new partnership serving veterans in a variety of ways aligns well with our core values."

A portion of MidCountry Bank's donation will be used to provide veterans with emergency financial assistance, including funding for the Foundation's COVID-19 Emergency Financial Relief Program. In March 2020, PenFed Foundation became the first national Veterans Service Organization (VSO) to launch a COVID-19 relief program providing emergency financial assistance for veterans and service members. To date, over 1,000 military families have received COVID-19 emergency financial relief since March 17.

Funds will also be used to support members of the military community in MidCountry Bank's backyard of Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa and Wisconsin achieve their dreams of home ownership. The Foundation's Dream Makers Grant provides active duty, Reserve, National Guard or veteran first-time homebuyers with matching grants for down payment and closing cost assistance. MidCountry Bank is also supporting veteran entrepreneurs through the Veteran Entrepreneurship Investment Program (VEIP).
