Newport News, Va. – (December 18, 2023) – Langley Federal Credit Union employees nominated local nonprofit agencies for their annual Make a Difference Donation Campaign. These donations are comprised of employee payroll deduction gifts and matching funds from the Langley for Families Foundation. Over the course of 2023 nearly $50,000 was donated by Langley employees through Langley’s payroll giving program. When combined with LFCU’s 100% match, the Foundation distributed nearly $100,000 end-of-year donations to employee-selected nonprofits! 

Langley employees who have been donating through payroll giving were invited to nominate a nonprofit agency of their choice to receive a portion of the collective contributions made through the payroll giving program. A total of 53 nonprofit organizations were nominated by at least one Langley employee to receive an end-of-year donation, with each nomination benefitting the nonprofit by $1,491. All employee-nominated agencies are listed below, and Langley donors were given the option to personally deliver these donations to their nonprofit of choice (pictured below).
