FEWA Foundation

The FEWA Foundation is a separate 501(c) 3 corporation for purely charitable causes through programs.
The FEWA Foundation operates entirely on donations and grants.

The FEWA Foundation provides immigration services for low income and foreign born temporary seasonal workers in times of need.

The Native American Jump Start on Employment Program NAJSEP helps link the community of FEWA employers with the community of Native American high school graduates from Native Reservation Communities in North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana and Wyoming. In many Reservation communities unemployment is as high as 85% and willing high school graduate workers cannot find jobs.
