Suncoast Credit Union, a leading financial institution dedicated to serving the local community, has launched an exciting May contest to support three remarkable local nonprofits in Tampa. This initiative aims to highlight extraordinary work done by the organizations and provide an opportunity for community members to vote for their favorite nonprofit. 

Each month the Suncoast marketing team works with their Foundation and Community Relations team to identify nonprofit organizations throughout Florida. They look to find organizations that represent the various areas that Suncoast serves so they're all serving different missions and locations. They also work to ensure that the three groups have a similar social media following so that they each have a fair chance at getting the largest portion of the donations. 

“Giving back to the community is part of our DNA at Suncoast Credit Union, and this program allows us to celebrate and recognize the incredible nonprofit organizations throughout Florida,” said Kevin Johnson, President and CEO, Suncoast Credit Union. “We are proud to partner with the Tampa Bay Rays on a project that will help to highlight and reward the nonprofits that make our community a vibrant place for everyone.”

The current contest for this month features HEAVENDROPt, the Boys & Girls Club of Central Florida and The Children's Dream Fund.


HEAVENDROPt is an extraordinary nonprofit that produces eco-friendly products while providing meaningful employment to people with Veterans and other citizens with disabilities. All of their products are handmade in the United States using recycled miliary parachutes, making them organic and eco-friendly. Julie Jenkins, the Director of Development and Community Relations for HEAVENDROPt says, "We are excited Suncoast Credit Union has given us this wonderful opportunity! All of us (charities) are winners!"
