Wescom announces NIL partnership with UCLA Women’s Softball Student-Athlete Maya Brady
Partnership will build upon existing ways in which Wescom provides better banking for Bruins and celebrates Maya Brady’s softball achievements
PASADENA, CA (September 13, 2022) —
Southern California-based Wescom Credit Union today announced that it is partnering with UCLA student-athlete and women’s softball star Maya Brady. This will mark Wescom’s first student-athlete partnership since the Name Image and Likeness (NIL) rules were enacted by the NCAA in 2021.
“We are excited to collaborate with UCLA Women’s Softball student-athlete, Maya Brady, an outstanding individual on and off the field,” noted Ashley White, Vice President, Partner Development of Wescom Credit Union. “Wescom is proud to serve the entire UCLA Bruin community and help students, like Maya, build better financial futures by offering personal service and products and services tailored to their needs.”
As the Official Banking Partner of many UCLA entities and organizations, Wescom offers unique products to the UCLA community such as:
- The UCLA Technology Loan, helping Bruins buy computers, software, and tech accessories with a 0% interest loan, making it easier for a student to focus on schoolwork rather than worry about how they are going to afford a new computer.
- Wescom also offers the Bruin Edge Visa® Credit Card and the Bruin Choice Visa® Credit Card that reward members with 5% cash back on UCLA specific purchases and opportunities for unique experiences. Plus, members can earn 1.5% cash back everywhere else Visa is accepted, from online purchases to bill payments. Cash back offers are redeemable through the MyRewards program.
Wescom’s support for UCLA entities includes being named the Official Banking Partner of:
- UCLA Athletics

I chose UCLA for its academic rigor and athletics program, and I’m choosing to partner with Wescom because of their Bruin-focused initiatives that build better lives on and off campus.”
