Desert Financial Kicks Off Findlay Toyota Center and NAZ Wranglers Partnership with $10,000 Donation to Territorial Elementary in Chino Valley

Desert Financial Credit Union has expanded its commitment to the Yavapai County area with one-year corporate partnership agreements with the Findlay Toyota Center, managed by OVG360 and the Northern Arizona Wranglers, the region’s premiere professional sports team, with both located in Prescott Valley. These partnerships arrive on the heels of the opening of Desert Financial’s first Prescott-area branch.

“The Findlay Toyota Center is the perfect partner for Desert Financial as we deepen our involvement with the Yavapai County community,” said Mike Kastner, Desert Financial’s Northern Arizona market manager. “They accommodate thousands of people at their facility each year, providing us the opportunity to engage with and introduce our community- focused services to more Northern Arizonans than we have before.”

The three entities will inaugurate their partnership with a $10,000 donation to Territorial Elementary School in Chino Valley. The donation will help fund the school’s playground improvements, including the installation of artificial turf.

“With the opening of their Prescott Valley branch, Desert Financial has become an incredibly active community supporter,” said Satish Athelli, Director of Global Partnerships at Findlay Toyota Center and longtime Prescott resident. “We are beyond excited to be working with Desert Financial, especially as we join forces to strengthen and give back to local organizations.”

Additionally, Desert Financial will sponsor an Indoor Football League game night at Findlay Toyota Center for Prescott-area teachers, school workers and their families. As a thank you for their contributions to the community, they will have the opportunity to score one of 250 tickets to the Northern Arizona Wranglers vs. Tucson Sugar Skulls game on May 14th.

“This partnership is a win-win-win,” said Trey Medlock, President of the Northern Arizona Wranglers. “We get the opportunity to work alongside Arizona’s largest credit union, while expanding our local outreach and making an even greater impact on the community.”

Desert Financial opened the doors to its first Yavapai County branch in Prescott Valley on Sept. 7, 2021.
