POSTAL RELIEF FUND
The Postal Employees Relief Fund (PERF)
provides financial assistance for APWU members as well as other postal
employees and retirees whose homes and property have been substantially damaged by natural disasters and
home fires if the employees are not reimbursed by insurance or grants.
Supported and administered by all employee unions and the Postal Service, PERF is a tax-exempt charitable
organization that is funded through donations from federal employees.
APWU encourages its members to support PERF by making charitable contributions to the fund through the
Combined Federal Campaign, the government's annual workplace charity drive. (Use designation #10268.) Each
postal district is allotted a six-week period annually between Sept. 1 and Dec. 31 to solicit contributions. (Please
contact your USPS District to find out when your CFC campaign
will take place.)
New PERF brochures, posters and DVD’s are available to APWU
local and state organizations to distribute during their
district's Combined Federal Campaign season. These items can
be obtained in limited quantities at no charge while supplies
last, through the APWU Human Relations Department. (202-
842-4271) Allow two weeks for delivery.
Since its establishment in 1990, PERF has provided more than
3,000 grants totaling nearly $15 million to active and retired
postal employees impacted by hurricanes, typhoons,
earthquakes, floods, tornadoes, wildfires and home fires.

can also be a valuable source of information and assistance for
