BECU accepting nominations for their 2022 People Helping People Awards!

Monday, June 13, 2022

BECU, Washington’s largest credit union, is currently accepting nominations for their 2022 People Helping People Awards! 

This annual, member-driven program recognizes both BECU members and local nonprofits that are dedicated to serving their communities, from ending hunger and pushing for social equity and justice, to transforming lives through education, mentorship and more. 

Interested nonprofits are encouraged to share this opportunity with their network so that a BECU member may nominate them for this awards program.

Other facts include:
  • Each winner will receive up to $50,000 in grant funds and a glide path grant of $2,500 for the two years following their initial award.
  • Through our Black Community Development Project (BCDP), a five-year, $5 million commitment to Black communities and racial equity, we’re giving up to $150,000 in additional funding to support small, Black-led nonprofits nominated by BECU members. (Glide path funding does not apply to BCDP grant recipients)
  • Since the program launched in 2013, BECU has donated more than $3 million to over 120 local nonprofits. A list of our 2021 award recipients can be found here.
