Suncoast Loves the Tampa Bay Rays!

Suncoast Credit Union is proud to partner with the Tampa Bay Rays! Through our partnership, we sponsor meaningful programs that impact our community and align with the Suncoast Credit Union Foundation by supporting the education of children.

Reading with the Rays

Another part of our partnership that we love is Reading with the Rays, a program that keep kids reading all summer long.

During the summer, kids can pick up their game card at their local library. Then they can check out some of their favorite books and start reading! The goal is 24 total hours of reading.

Students use a game card to track hours and collect prizes, with two tickets to a Rays game as the grand prize for students who read 24 hours during the program.

In 2019, we had more than 44,700 participants from nine of the counties we serve. That’s more than 355,000 total hours of reading in one summer! There were 10,179 fans that experienced a game from the program during the 2019 season.

We’re so proud of all of the participants and can't wait to see how many readers we get in the summer of 2020! For more information, please visit raysbaseball.com/reading.

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.
