The BayPort Foundation is dedicated to the credit union philosophy of “people helping people.” As the philanthropic arm of BayPort Credit Union, the Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) charity that focuses on wellness and education.
The Foundation offers grants and contributions to 501(c)(3) nonprofits and individuals. Our mission focuses on four philanthropic efforts: educational scholarships, financial literacy education, promoting family health and wellness, and hardship and emergency assistance.
Our family-friendly fundraising event is October 1-2, 2022. The Half Marathon, 5K, and Kids 1K is the perfect place to run, crawl, and SHELLebrate (see what we did there?). Registered participants will be an essential part of making the BayPort Foundation Crawlin’ Crab Half Marathon Weekend a success.
The Foundation offers 10 different scholarships to the communities BayPort serves, including high school seniors, participating Student-Run Credit Unions (SRCUs) high school seniors, college students, and full-time working professionals going back to school.
Submissions for the 2022/2023 academic year are now open!
Applications are evaluated on the following criteria: GPA, academic achievements, financial need, school and community involvement, and a written essay. Applicants must be pursuing a degree or certification at an accredited college, university, or technical school.
The Foundation Legacy Giving Program honors those who share our commitment and philanthropic efforts. Consider including the Foundation and the vital work we do in your financial plans:
Our inaugural golf tournament teed off on April 28, 2022, at the James River Country Club in Newport News. BayPort Credit Union paid all the overhead to ensure that 100% of the contributions support the Foundation’s 501(c)(3) mission.
