Another record high and the first year to exceed $1 million

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – (January 6, 2022) – In 2021, Langley for Families Foundation eclipsed the $1 million milestone in annual impact with donations to local causes totaling more than $1,000,000. When combined with the philanthropic efforts of Langley Federal Credit Union, donations exceeded $1.5 million.

The donations assisted 133 regional nonprofit organizations in addition to Langley’s continued support of CHKD’s new mental health hospital in Norfolk. The funded organizations focused on four program areas: healthcare, housing and human services, safety and security, and education.

In 2021, Langley for Families Foundation donated $1,002,138, an 18% increase. Since its start in 2014, the Foundation has donated $3,600,000. These funds were generated from generous employees, members and successful fundraising events such as the annual golf tournament and cash raffle.

“Langley for Families Foundation allows us to make a difference in the lives of families throughout Hampton Roads by providing basic needs for those most in need, like shelter, food, and education,” said President & CEO Tom Ryan. “Meeting the $1 million milestone is a huge accomplishment for our staff and our members.”

Langley Federal Credit Union also made a profound economic impact in the region beyond charitable giving. With more than $3.4 billion in member deposits, $3.3 billion in member loans and more than 300,000 members, Langley has grown to be one of the top 100 credit unions in the country.

Highlights from Langley’s 2021 community impact:

  • Donated $125,000 in scholarships to local universities, teachers and graduating high school seniors. Langley made its first scholarship contribution to the College of William & Mary this year.
  • Donated $10,000 to American Red Cross of Coastal Virginia to support its work relocating Afghan refugees in Virginia after the U.S. military withdrawal.
  • Granted $95,000 in Annual Impact Cause Grants to five organizations: Freekind, Safe House Project, Samaritan House, Survivor Ventures and Transitions in addition to providing monthly webinars and information sessions for employees on human trafficking, the selected cause for 2021.
