Langley for Families Foundation Donations Exceed $1 Million in 2021
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.
