BFCU Community Giveback

This year, the BFCU Community Giveback will be a little bit different. We are not going to be having our annual BEST Fest, so we will not be able to annouce the winners and have them speak as in years past. That is why we decided to simplify things a bit and award (15) nonprofits with $1,000 each. No videos to submit, simply "old fashioned" voting. 

The top (10) that receive the most votes during the public voting (from the list below - scroll down until you see the "vote" buttons) will receive $1,000 plus (5) that the Credit Union selects. Public voting will end on July 10, 2020 at 6 PM EST. You may vote, once per day, per email address. 

Keep in mind the totaling of votes is a manual process for the Credit Union on the back end, so the vote totals will be updated ONCE per day, Monday through Friday around 5 PM. 

 As part of the Community Giveback for the past three years the organizations listed below have each received $5,000:
