Chartway FCU's We Promise Foundation Awards $75,000 Grant to Make-A-Wish

RICHMOND (FEB. 8, 2019) – Make-A-Wish Greater Virginia, a nonprofit that grants life-changing wishes to children diagnosed with critical illnesses, announced today that the organization has been awarded a $75,000 grant from the We Promise Foundation, Chartway Federal Credit Union’s charitable arm. This grant will help fund the wishes of approximately 15 children this year in the Tidewater region.

“We can only get closer to achieving our vision of granting every eligible child’s wish through the generous support of our community,” said Sheri Lambert, president and CEO of Make-A-Wish Greater Virginia. “We are truly grateful for the continued support from Chartway Federal Credit Union’s We Promise Foundation. This grant will help more local children experience the strength and hope provided by a wish-come-true.”

We Promise Foundation Executive Director Karen Lane said the credit union’s charitable arm is a proud supporter of Make-A-Wish Greater Virginia. “For children facing medical hardship or illness, having the chance to experience a wish can be life-changing,” she said. “That’s why we could not be more honored to partner with Make-A-Wish Greater Virginia to bring joy, hope, and smiles to deserving heroes right here in Hampton Roads.”

Make-A-Wish Greater Virginia has set the goal of granting 179 wishes this fiscal year. In January 2019, the organization granted its 5,000th local wish since the organization’s inception in 1987.
