Mountain America becomes the exclusive credit union of BYU Athletics
PROVO, Utah – BYU Athletics and Mountain America Credit Union are pleased to announce an expanded, long-term partnership, granting Mountain America exclusivity for the credit union sponsorship category.
“We are thankful to Mountain America for the significant financial investment it has provided for BYU Athletics and will continue to provide in coming years,” said Tom Holmoe, BYU director of athletics. “In a time when we’ve asked Cougar Nation to be all in, Mountain America has been all in. We are so thankful to Mountain America for sticking with us, even through a time of uncertainly in this pandemic, and for their commitment.
Through this partnership, Mountain America will continue to support the development of student-athletes at BYU and have prominent branding at all home athletic games, including football, basketball, volleyball, soccer, softball and baseball.
“Mountain America is pleased to continue our long-standing partnership with BYU Athletics,” said Sterling Nielsen, president and chief executive officer at Mountain America Credit Union. “In addition to supporting the university, this partnership allows us to give back to the community through our 3-point shot and touchdowns charitable programs.”
Since 2018, Mountain America’s BYU football and basketball donation programs have donated nearly $50,000 to the American Red Cross to provide critical care and resources for those impacted by disasters and emergencies. During the 2021-2022 school year, Mountain America will donate $250 for every touchdown and $50 to the American Red Cross for every 3-point shot made.
