Global Credit Union Foundation golf tournament raises $50,000 for Inland Northwest nonprofits

Global Credit Union Foundation brought its ever-popular Fairway Friends Golf Tournament to the Home of the Floating Green in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, Sept. 19. A fun-filled day of competition and comradery brought together golfers and Foundation partners to raise money for two hard-working nonprofits, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Inland Northwest and Newby-ginnings of North Idaho Inc. 

 “The Foundation is committed to giving back to the community in the markets we serve,” said Geoff Lundfelt, president of the Global Credit Union Foundation. “We’re incredibly grateful for the opportunity to host an event that brings together community members and raises funds for some truly great causes.”

 $25,000 was distributed to Big Brothers Big Sisters, which uses a volunteer mentoring network to develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people. Another $25,000 went to Newby-ginnings, which provides—with honor, respect, and integrity—essential items, resources and referrals to active military, veterans, and Gold Star families in need of such services.

 The Global Credit Union Foundation Fairway Friends Golf Tournament is an annual event that invites business partners, credit union leaders and volunteers, and the community to support nonprofit partners of the Foundation.

Global Credit Union Foundation volunteers present $25,000 to Newby-ginnings and $25,000 to Big Brother Big Sisters Inland Northwest.
