Four years after becoming the official banking partner of the Kansas City Chiefs, CommunityAmerica Credit Union is launching a financial education and philanthropic initiative with Travis Kelce, tight end for the professional football team, the credit union announced Thursday.
According to the $4.9 billion, Lenexa, Kan.-based CommunityAmerica, the credit union will be working with Kelce and local organizations to bring financial education tools and programs to people living in the Kansas City, Mo., area. The formal partnership follows Kelce’s development of the Ignition Lab at Operation Breakthrough, a Kansas City charitable organization that CommunityAmerica has supported. Operation Breakthrough provides low-income and homeless children with meals, education and health care, and the Ignition Lab, which Kelce opened with backing from his foundation Eighty-Seven & Running, offers educational and career skills programs for high school-age kids who have completed Operation Breakthrough’s programs for younger age groups.
