Langley Federal Credit Union is proud to support the Hampton Roads community. In 2021, the combined charitable giving efforts of Langley Federal Credit Union and the Langley for Families Foundation amounted to over $1,500,000. A total of 133 unique charitable organizations were recipients of these funds.
Langley prioritizes mental health and wellbeing for our members, our employees, and the communities in which they live, work, and play. Through partnerships with non-profit organizations and clinics, Langley supports healthcare as a right for all.
In 2019, Langley pledged $1,000,000 to Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters (CHKD) new mental health hospital. Located in downtown Norfolk, this facility will make a significant impact in the community by filling a much-needed gap of services, including 60 inpatient beds, an extensive expansion of outpatient services, and training for mental health professionals.
Supporting education in Hampton Roads has always been important to Langley Federal Credit Union. In 2021, Langley provided $110,000 in scholarships, in addition to $15,000 to support classrooms and teachers. Access to education is the foundation of success and financial wellbeing. Langley is dedicated to increasing access to higher education, supporting local students and teachers, and helping bridge the technology gap.

Our employees are the backbone of our Credit Union, and they truly make a difference each day. They believe in the mission of both Langley and our Langley for Families Foundation. In fact, our Payroll Deduction Program raised $48,000 for the Langley for Families Foundation, and these funds were distributed to 40 worthy non-profit organizations of our employees choosing.
The dedicated, hard-working, and passionate Langley team is one of the largest assets here. We continually aim to mobilize our employees to multiply our impact through volunteering efforts year-round. Langley began a new tradition in 2020 - a Day of Service in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s legacy. Though the 2021 event was scaled back due to COVID-19, we still moved forward with two projects - assembling welcome home kits for veterans-in-need moving into safe, permanent housing and installing new flooring in the gamesroom of a local Boys & Girls Club.
Including the Day of Service, Langley employees volunteered for a total of 2,500 hours in 2021! We're happy to be able to support in more ways than one, and help build a stronger, healthier community with great partners.
Langley Federal Credit Union has a long history of community involvement and charitable giving dating back to the founding of the credit union in the 1930's. With a commitment to making a difference in the communities it serves, Langley for Families Foundation was launched in 2014 to support causes and charities benefiting children and families.
In 2021, Langley for Families Foundation reached an incredible milestone - donating more than $1,000,000 in one year. Grants are awarded three times each year. The online application and deadlines can be found on the Foundation's website.
