The BayPort Foundation is excited to announce that it has raised $113,170 at its first-ever Charity Golf Classic event, hosted on April 28, 2022.
Forty local businesses sponsored the inaugural tournament along with the 84 golfers who played the award-winning golf course at the James River Country Club in Newport News.
The successful fundraising outcome was made possible by the support of sponsors of all levels and Gold Sponsor partners: Haywood Floor Covering, Mastercard, North River Construction, and Tommy Garner Air Conditioning and Heating.
The Charity Golf Classic benefits the BayPort Foundation’s $100,000 scholarship program and awarding of charitable grants to promote financial literacy, family health and wellness, and hardship and emergency assistance.
As the philanthropic arm of BayPort Credit Union, the Foundation is an extension of the credit union’s charitable giving. BayPort Credit Union commits more than half a million dollars in annual corporate donations and pays all the Foundation’s overhead to ensure that 100% of the Foundation donations support its mission.
