Inspire Generous Living
The FAIRWINDS Foundation’s core purpose is to inspire generosity, match generosity, volunteer everywhere, and work with and support organizations that improve lives through financial well-being.
The FAIRWINDS Foundation believes 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.
"We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give."
We know you have a passion of your own. We want to 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 you with others that share your passion, FAIRWINDS Foundation is here for you.
The crewmembers at FAIRWINDS Credit Union are a generous bunch. Not only do they work every day to improve the financial well-being of the membership, they live generously in numerous ways driven by their individual passion. As the credit union’s foundation we inspire and recognize that spirit of giving through our crewmember donation matching program.
We advocate volunteerism by regularly working with FAIRWINDS crewmembers in community outreach. Whether teaching a financial literacy course in a classroom or stocking shelves at a food bank, FAIRWINDS crewmembers are continuously out and about in the community lending a helping hand. We advocate in this same way with our members encouraging group projects and connecting members to volunteer opportunities wherever they are.
FAIRWINDS Foundation believes 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 passion to improve lives through financial literacy.Apply For a Grant
