Tampa Area Credit Union for Kids Foundation
Since 1994, the Tampa Bay Area Credit Unions for Kids and Suncoast Credit Union has joined forces with other bay area credit unions to make a lasting impact on kids in our communities.
Over the last 15 years, the Tampa Bay Area Credit Unions for Kids has donated over $4 million dollars to organizations that support the needs of children in our community. These donations have impacted the Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital, The Center for Autism, a Fellowship at Johns Hopkins All Children Institute for Brain Protection Science, Tampa General Hospital’s Pediatric Palliative Care Suite and Pediatric Long-Term Monitoring Suite.
The most current initiative is Project Lead, a collaboration with the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s office and the Boys and Girls clubs of Tampa Bay. Project Lead is a unique and innovative program that drives meaningful impact in communities that need us the most. Local youth receive mentorship and support from mentors that wear a badge. These relationships increase the respect between law enforcement and the community and help with crime reduction and reduction of out of school suspensions.
