Running toward relief

UW Credit Union partners with star football player to provide COVID-19 assistance.

UW Credit Union, Madison, Wis., has partnered with former Wisconsin Badgers Football running back and NFL draft pick Jonathan Taylor to raise money for coronavirus (COVID-19) relief efforts.

The $3.5 billion asset credit union will donate $23 to both the United Way of Dane County and United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County for every new checking account opened with the organization’s Jump Around or Bucky debit cards.

“The $23 is significant on multiple levels,” says UW Credit Union President/CEO Paul Kundert. “Of course, it’s the number Jonathan has worn on his back for three great seasons at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. But it’s also a reflection of our shared pride in Wisconsin, a commitment to doing what we can to help carry others through these difficult times.”
