Pima Federal believes strongly in being a community partner and that our success is deeply tied to the success of our neighbors. Over the years, we have demonstrated extraordinary efforts in our community through the amount of volunteerism, educational support, and community giving/fundraising that we provide. We started our Community Stewardship Program in 2011 as a way to provide volunteer opportunities to our employees. Each year the program has become more and more impactful in our communities and in the lives of our employees.
In 2014, community outreach efforts reached an all-time high as our employees volunteered over 2,200 hours in the community and taught financial literacy to 952 students. The credit union also provided financial donations of almost $90,000 to local organizations. The Pima Federal Golf Classic raised $36,000 and with a match from Walgreens provided over $72,000 of school supplies to local school districts through our partnership with Tucson Values Teachers. The Marana Chamber of Commerce recognized our community efforts and awarded our credit union with the Community and Business Builder of the Year Award.
We have a firm commitment to enhancing the standard of living in our communities and to make Arizona a more desirable place to live. Pima Federal commits to allowing our employees to volunteer in a variety of ways with a variety of organizations in order to contribute to the social fabric of our communities. We also encourage our employees to donate their own time to these organizations as a way to further the Credit Union philosophy of People Helping People.
