Nominate us for a People Helping People Award!

Calling all BECU members! It’s time for BECU’s annual People Helping People Awards. This grant process allows members of the community to help decide some of the nonprofits BECU supports financially. Members nominate local organizations to receive a grant of up to $50,000. Finalists are selected among the applicants and the community votes to determine the People’s Choice Award recipient.
