Generous living can make an extraordinary difference in transforming the lives of others. It can also make a difference in how good we feel about ourselves and make the world a better place for all.

FAIRWINDS Foundation

We believe that when families and individuals have the information and tools needed to secure and improve their financial health, we collectively impact and improve our community’s economic well-being.

How We Help


Inspiring Your Passions

We know you have a passion of your own, and we want to help inspire that passion and the impact you can have through generous living. Whether it’s finding a cause you care about, making donations on your behalf, or connecting with others who share your passion, we are here for you.


A Life of Generosity

The crewmembers at FAIRWINDS are a generous bunch and work tirelessly each day to improve the financial well-being of their members while living generously by giving to their community in numerous ways. As the credit union’s foundation, we inspire and recognize that spirit of giving.


A Servant's Heart

Whether teaching a financial literacy course in a classroom or stocking shelves at a food bank, we advocate that both crewmembers and members be continuously out in the community, lending a helping hand. We strive to encourage group projects and connect people to volunteer opportunities.


Growing the Community

We believe that when individuals are financially informed, they are better positioned to secure and improve their financial well-being. So our core purpose is working with and supporting organizations that align with our desire to improve lives through financial literacy.
