Langley Federal Credit Union is proud to support the Hampton Roads community. In 2022, the combined charitable giving efforts of Langley Federal Credit Union and the Langley for Families Foundation amounted to over $1,622,000. A total of 160 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 nonprofit 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, the mental health hospital is making a significant impact in the community by filling a much-needed gap of services. This includes 60 inpatient beds, an extensive expansion of outpatient services, and training for mental health professionals. In 2022, CHKD’s mental health hospital opened its doors with outpatient and inpatient services having started in April and October respectively.
Langley understands that access to education is the foundation of success and financial wellbeing. In 2022, Langley provided $145,000 in student scholarships, as well as $15,000 in grants to help teachers across Hampton Roads enhance their classroom experience. 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 2022, employee giving reached an all-time high with $51,555 donated through Langley’s payroll giving program. Combined with Langley’s 100% match, the Foundation distributed $103,110 to 65 deserving nonprofit 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. With 2021 Day of Service being limited due to the pandemic, our team was thrilled to kick off 2022 by volunteering at nonprofits across the Hampton Roads community. Over 100 employees participated, completing 13 volunteer projects which included painting offices, organizing thrift stores, home renovations, and more.
Including the 3rd annual MLK Jr. Day of Service, Langley employees volunteered for a total of 2,370 hours in 2022! We're happy to be able to support in more ways than one, and help build a stronger, healthier community with some of the most impactful nonprofit organizations across Hampton Roads.
