By donating $25 for every auto loan its members originated with them in October-December, 2016, the National Institutes of Health Federal Credit Union (NIHFCU) was proud to provide $8,500 to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) charities.

The donation will be split evenly among the three official NIH charities: The Children’s Inn at NIH, The Friends of Patients at the NIH, and Special Love.  Funds will go directly to helping each organization fulfill their goal of supporting patients and families struggling with the life-altering impact of significant illness and treatments.

Steven Levin, NIHFCU’s Vice President of Marketing & Business Development states, “The NIHFCU is thrilled to give back to the NIH community which, since 1940, has provided us with the privilege of serving their dedicated workforce.”  He adds, “Whether our donation helps to send young cancer patients to summer camp, delivers some financial relief for distressed families at the NIH for long-term stays, or contributes to providing a safe haven for ill children in between their NIH treatments and hospitalization, the NIHFCU is honored to support the incredible missions of these three fine organizations.”

“The NIHFCU is an integral part of the NIH community and the NIH Charities cannot thank them enough for their generosity,” states Randy Schools, NIH Charities Founding Board Member and Trustee.  “This gift, along with the other financial and in-kind support the credit union has provided throughout the years, has truly made a difference in the lives of thousands of patients and families who are faced with extreme medical circumstances.”

Through its on-going community engagement efforts, the NIHFCU will continue to seek other opportunities to give back to the NIH and the larger healthcare and biomedical industry it serves within Maryland, North Carolina, Virginia, Washington DC and West Virginia.
