PHOENIX, AZ—Drivers and putters were in full swing for the annual Global Credit Union Foundation Fairway Friends Golf Tournament on Nov. 6, 2023. Foundation partners and golfers of every skill level descended on the Phoenix Country Club on a mission to have fun and raise money for two of Arizona’s most respected nonprofits, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arizona and the Arizona Housing Coalition.
“Every year the Foundation golf tournament gets better and better,” said Geoff Lundfelt, president of the Global Credit Union Foundation. “In large part because of the wonderful, welcoming people of Arizona and our amazing business partners. We are incredibly grateful to them for helping us sustain the critical work Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arizona and the Arizona Housing Coalition are doing.”
$50,000 was distributed to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arizona, which uses a volunteer mentoring network to develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people. Another $50,000 went to the Arizona Housing Coalition, for their StandDown Alliance, which helps veterans and their families who are experiencing housing instability and homelessness to get—and stay connected to—supportive 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.
