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.
For the third year, the BayPort Foundation is excited to team with J&A Racing to serve as the title sponsor and official charity partner of the premier, family-friendly fundraising event, the BayPort Foundation Crawlin’ Crab Half Marathon Weekend. The Crawlin’ Crab Race Weekend takes place in Hampton on October 7-8, 2023. The festive event has a race distance for all abilities and all ages: Half Marathon, 5K, and Kids 1K.
This spring, we hosted our 2nd Annual Charity Golf Classic at the James River Country Club in Newport News. BayPort Credit Union pays all the overhead to ensure that 100% of the contributions support the Foundation’s 501(c)(3) mission.
To address gaps in services for Hampton Roads communities, three leading corporations headquartered in Newport News, Virginia – HII’s Newport News Shipbuilding, Ferguson, and BayPort Credit Union – partner to fund a $500,000, three-year transformation grant, called Accelerating Change Together (ACT).
The Foundation offers 11 different scholarships to high school seniors, college students, and full-time working adults going back to school.
Submissions for the 2023/2024 academic year have closed.
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.
