Kindness in the Making

In the fall of 2020, the SECU MD Foundation had an idea. As the world continued to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, which left people feeling disconnected, lonely, and anxious, the foundation decided to spread kindness through a month-long Kindness Campaign.

It was simple really. SECU employees set out to brighten someone’s day by doing things like baking cookies for their neighbors, leaving kind messages in chalk on sidewalks, volunteering at their favorite non-profit organization, and paying for someone’s coffee. Through one kind act, we could create a kindness ripple effect as people paid kindness forward.

What started as a way to uplift people in our communities during the pandemic has turned into a movement that is connecting people across our state – and country – through kindness. In the first three years of our Kindness Campaign, we:

  • Recorded more than 280,000 acts of kindness on our Kindness Tracker
  • Performed over 5,000 volunteer hours in our communities
  • Made $52,000 in in-kind donations
  • Awarded $100,000 in kindness grants to Special Olympics of Maryland and Kennedy Krieger Institute
  • Raised $10,000 for the SECU MD Foundation

Now in its fourth year, we set an ambitious goal to perform 500,000 acts of kindness during our 2023 Kindness Campaign, which will run during the month of October.

You can help. There are many ways to spread kindness and make someone’s day a little brighter. Be sure to record your kindness act on our Kindness Tracker.

Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for kindness.

Day of Kindness

Kindness can inspire transformational change in our communities. As part of our commitment to Kindness, SECU and the SECU MD Foundation held a Day of Kindness on October 9, 2023. The SECU team partnered with 20 area non-profit organizations to spread kindness, with 357 employees volunteering 2,856 hours and completing 179,067 acts of kindness!

Our team packaged meals and snack bags; sorted books, sports equipment, and tools; made fleece blankets; wrote thank you notes, Thanksgiving notes, and notes of encouragement; planted trees; and much more!

Why Spread Kindness?

Together, we can grow our impact exponentially.
We believe kindness can inspire true, measurable transformational change in our communities. The Kindness Campaign has broken barriers, created a ripple effect of generosity, and united organizations and individuals from every corner of our state, and globally. This impact, which transcends any one individual, compels us to seek your support.

Help support our partners, local business, and our shared communities.
Sharing kindness pulls together the support of many incredible partners and local business. We all join forces with one common goal – do good. SECU is humbled to have worked with numerous partners resulting in more than tens-of-thousands of acts of kindness contributed by over ~4,500 individuals. We hope you will also join us on our mission to make a positive contribution to our shared communities.

Create a ripple effect.
One single act of kindness no matter how big or small can make an impact. That impact can result in a ripple of kindness that includes a countless number of people. There are simple ways you can get involved that take less than 30 seconds! Imagine the positive impact you could have in the same amount of time it takes to read this.
