The FedChoice Charitable Foundation has been working to strengthen communities and positively impact the lives of individuals since 2017. Originally founded as the Tangerine Foundation, the non-profit 501 (c) (3) established by FedChoice Federal Credit Union was created to assist members of the Federal Community in successfully navigating their retirement and benefit options.

In 2023, the Foundation changed its name to the FedChoice Charitable Foundation to better reflect the expanded mission of improving the financial well-being of those in need, making a positive difference in local communities, and never losing sight of its initial purpose of being a resource, advocate, and champion for members of the Federal Community. Today, the foundation has broadened its purpose and added two new program areas revolving around financial literacy to draw on the skills and resources of its credit union founder while embodying the ‘People Helping People’ philosophy of The Credit Union Movement.
