NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – (October 25, 2023) – The Langley for Families Foundation (LFF) announced the grantees of its second giving cycle of 2023 – a total of $400,125 donated to 52 nonprofit organizations across the Greater Hampton Roads area.

All grant awards focus on the Foundation’s three core program areas – access to education, healthcare, and housing & human services. The Foundation’s mission is to make a difference in the lives of families in all of the communities Langley serves, with an emphasis on providing basic needs to households struggling to make ends meet.

“With the basic cost of living becoming challenging for more families due to a turbulent and uncertain economy, nonprofit agencies have been some of the hardest hit organizations over the course of 2023,” shared Jerome Fowlkes, CHRO of Langley Federal Credit Union and Board Member of the Langley for Families Foundation. “The Langley for Families Foundation is proud to support some of our community’s most impactful nonprofits, enabling them to expand their capacity, and ensuring resources and services are available for our friends and neighbors in need.”

Among the causes that the Langley for Families Foundation supports is access to education in underserved communities as Langley understands that education is the foundation of success and financial wellbeing. Of the $400K distributed this grant cycle, the Langley for Families Foundation donated over $105,000 in support of initiatives that bridge gaps in education in communities with limited resources. Some of the grant recipients included REACH Inc., Starbase Victory, Inc., Tidewater Friends of Foster Care, Young Investors Group, and Norfolk State University Foundation.

The Langley for Families Foundation will host a total of three giving cycles in 2023, with the deadline for applications for the third cycle of the year due on November 4, 2023.
