TAMPA, Fla. (May 25, 2012) – The Suncoast for Kids Foundation, funded by Suncoast Schools Federal Credit Union, announces a new name, Suncoast Schools Federal Credit Union Foundation, and a new logo to reflect the mission and vision of the Foundation.

The mission of the Foundation is to benefit sick children and families and support education initiatives through scholarships and contributions to public schools, medical research and development, family support organizations and other charitable programs of direct benefit to children.

“We wanted our new name and logo to reflect the credit union that makes our initiatives possible,” says Mary Tlachac, executive director of Suncoast Schools Federal Credit Union Foundation. “Each time a member uses their Suncoast Schools Federal Credit Union Visa credit card or debit card, two cents is donated to the Foundation to fund education and health-related initiatives to help children in our communities, keeping money in the local community where it is invested.”

Since 1992, the Foundation has donated $7 million to various children’s charities, and has awarded approximately $750,000 in scholarships. The Foundation is sponsored entirely by the credit union, allowing 100 percent of funds contributed to go directly to the organizations and initiatives that assist children in the communities the credit union serves.
