SOUTH BEND, Indiana, Oct. 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Credit Union 1 (CU1), a leading financial institution with branches in Illinois, Indiana and Nevada, and the official banking partner of Our Dame Athletics, announces its partnership with the Golic Family Foundation, a charitable organization created by notable Notre Dame alumnus, former NFL player and veteran sportscaster Mike Golic and his family. Together, CU1 and the Golic Family Foundation plan to offer $100,000 in grants to local nonprofits serving the South Bend community and beyond in 2023.
The partnership builds on the success of the first Golic Sub-Par Classic at the University of Notre Dame, held in June 2022. Credit Union 1 was the primary sponsor of the event, which benefited the Logan Center, the Center for the Homeless, the Northern Indiana Food Bank and the South Bend Animal Resource Center.
“South Bend will always be our family’s home thanks to the countless memories and milestones we’ve celebrated here, and we look forward to giving back to the community that has shaped us all,” Golic said. “Through the Golic Family Foundation, which will build on the success of the first Sub-Par Classic, we will raise funds for causes close to our hearts, and we are thrilled that this partnership with Credit Union 1 will allow us to give back in an even greater way.”
In addition to the $100,000 in grants that will be distributed, Credit Union 1 also plans to donate $200 to the Golic Family Foundation each time a new member opens a Fighting Irish program account, allowing members to participate in give back to the community.
“In our 65-year history, Credit Union 1 has always been committed to supporting families and communities. As we expand into the South Bend community with our new branch located minutes from the South Bend campus, ‘University of Notre Dame, we wanted to make sure that our presence went beyond just serving our local members,” says Todd Gunderson, President and CEO of Credit Union 1. “The partnership with the Golic Family Foundation was a natural fit, and we look forward to strengthening our ties with South Bend residents and the wonderful nonprofit organizations that serve the community.”
Grants will be distributed throughout 2023, but interested organizations can learn more and apply now at creditunion1.org/golic.
