RENTON, Wash. – The Seahawks and BECU, Washington's largest credit union, announced today a new exclusive multi-year partnership to make BECU the official credit union of the Seahawks.
With community engagement being a key focus for both organizations, the Seahawks and BECU plan to partner on various community initiatives in the months to come. Additionally, the partnership offers BECU exclusive team logo usage rights and in-stadium branding, as well as team trademarks for usage in digital media and radio campaigns, and member events in the credit union category.
“We are proud to welcome BECU to the Seahawks family as the official credit union of the team,” said Amy Sprangers, Seahawks Senior Vice President of Revenue. “BECU’s impressive focus on its members and the local community perfectly aligns with our goal to put the fans first in everything we do. We look forward to a strong partnership.”
“The Seahawks are known for creating unrivaled experiences for fans in the Pacific Northwest,” said Tom Berquist, BECU’s chief marketing officer. “At BECU, we are similarly passionate about our members and the communities we serve. Our partnership with the Seahawks allows BECU to provide our members with an opportunity to participate in unique, potentially once-in-a-lifetime experiences.”
As a member-owned credit union, BECU is focused on helping increase the financial well-being of its members and communities through better rates, fewer fees, community partnerships and financial education. As a result, the credit union returned $312 million to its members and donated $5.7 million to 196 community partners last year.
