About Us

Our Mission: To empower financial readiness of military and veteran communities to support their overall wellness.

About Us: Founded in 2013, Hanscom FCU Charitable Foundation has evolved to meet the changing needs of our community. As a 501©(3) non-profit organization, we initially focused on supporting organizations dedicated to the health, education, and well-being of children, homelessness prevention, and programs for veterans and their families.

Today, we continue this legacy of service, with a renewed commitment to enhancing the financial readiness and overall wellness of our military and veteran communities. Our efforts are aimed at creating a robust foundation for their future.

What Makes Us Unique? One-hundred percent of what we raise is donated with nothing deducted for administrative fees. We believe in direct impact, where every contribution makes a tangible difference.

Our Impact: We have given to organizations within our footprint that improve the lives of others.

  • Homelessness Prevention
  • Children’s Education
  • Children’s Illness & Research
  • Veteran & Military Programs

Now, with an emphasis on financial empowerment, we strive to provide the tools and resources necessary for our beneficiaries to achieve lasting wellness and stability. Today our foundation's focus is on military and Veteran programs.
