In the Community

There are several opportunities for supporting members to lend talent and services that can help us achieve our mission of providing funding and assistance that make a lasting impact in our local nonprofit community.

Hanscom FCU Charitable Foundation, Inc. will work to bring together new donors and new dollars each year offering additional and non-traditional resources to our community. The Foundation’s focus is on providing donations, marshaling both human and financial resources and providing assistance where we can do the most good for the community.

Each member of the foundation is required to pay annual dues of $10.00 to maintain their membership. Members are also encouraged to donate additional funds to support fundraising activities.

The Foundation will distribute 100% of the proceeds received, with nothing deducted for administrative expenses.
