The annual awards fulfill BECU’s principle of “people helping people.” Each year, we have the privilege of recognizing and assisting individuals and groups who devote time to helping others.
Recognizing local member supported non-profits
You support non-profit organizations; we support you. As a not-for-profit credit union, supporting our communities is in our DNA. The BECU People Helping People Awards recognize and honor both members and organizations in communities in our service areas.

People Helping People Community
The local nonprofits who have received awards are an impressive group. We are building a community of PHPA recipients who can work together making a difference in our communities. It's amazing what good comes out of a community of committed and like minded philanthropists! We encourage you to check out each organization and consider how you may be able to support them in their work.
