Since its inception in 1990, the Foundation has contributed more than $30
million including more than $2.2 million in scholarships. “We believe the best way we can build better communities is by investing in education
and health-related initiatives for children,” said Cindy Helton, Executive Director of the Suncoast Credit Union Foundation. “Through the Suncoast Credit Union Scholars program, we have the opportunity to invest in individual human potential, which is particularly rewarding.”
