Together Credit Union Joins St. Louis CITY SC as Our Official Banking Partner
As preparations for the club’s 2023 inaugural season continue to ramp up, St. Louis CITY SC welcomes Together Credit Union as its next founding partner and the team’s official banking sponsor. This new partnership promises to be more than just business as usual, bringing opportunities to underserved St. Louis neighborhoods through financial literacy programming and outreach efforts.
With deep roots in St. Louis and 13 branches in the region, Together Credit Union has been investing in the local community for over 80 years and has no plans to stop any time soon. The two STLMade organizations will team up on various community-driven initiatives, including financial education for local non-profits and easy access to banking for young people and families who need it most.
“Our partnership with Together Credit Union is extremely special to the club because of our shared values and commitment to the city,” said Carolyn Kindle Betz, St. Louis CITY SC Chief Executive Officer. “How incredible is it that both of St. Louis CITY SC’s first two founding partners are so deeply rooted in the St. Louis community? We couldn’t ask for anything better than that.”
In support of St. Louis CITY’s broader focus on youth development, Together Credit Union will provide educational resources, expert advice, and professional guidance to empower St. Louis-area families and youth towards a better financial future. The credit union and St. Louis CITY will also partner for community service projects, including Together Credit Union’s Day of Giving, helping local organizations serving people in need.
“Through our partnership with St. Louis CITY, we hope to broaden our outreach efforts by creating sustainable, long-term financial wellness programs,” said Tom Kraus, Together Credit Union’s Chief Operating Officer. “Our goal is to help young people and their families on the path to financial independence and success.”
As St. Louis CITY’s Official Banking Partner, Together Credit Union will offer exclusive St. Louis CITY SC-branded debit and credit cards for their members that will include stadium offers and events. Additionally, Together Credit Union will sponsor the “Together Credit Union Club” located on the stadium’s main concourse, where club ticket holders will have the chance to come together before, during, and after the match.
“The Together Credit Union Club will provide a one-of-a-kind experience inside the stadium where fans can come together on matchday to enjoy delicious STLMade food and beverages reflective of the diverse culinary flavors of St. Louis,” added Kraus. “We have immensely enjoyed working with St. Louis CITY to bring our vision to life and cannot wait to share the final designs.”
