Pac-12 Touchdowns for Equality, Presented by Pacific Premier Bank
Official Bank of the Pac-12 continues community impact following “Threes for Equality”
With the first two weeks of the football season complete, a total of 85 touchdowns have been scored by Pac-12 teams, raising $8,500 for social justice organizations from Pacific Premier Bank, the official bank of the Pac-12, as part of “Touchdowns for Equality.” All season long in 2021, Pacific Premier is donating $100 for every regular season touchdown made by a Pac-12 team, including touchdowns scored in the 2021 Pac-12 Football Championship Game. The total donation at the end of the season will be split evenly between the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) and National Urban League, which were selected by the Pac-12 Student-Athlete Leadership Team (SALT).
“Touchdowns for Equality is yet another example of how Pacific Premier Bank supports social justice and racial equality for all,” said Steve Gardner, Chairman and CEO of Pacific Premier. “Therefore, collaborating with organizations like Pac-12 is a natural fit as we help strengthen the communities we serve.”
In March 2021, the Pac-12 partnered with Pacific Premier Bank on “Threes for Equality,” which saw the official bank of the Conference donate $28,700 to social justice organizations after a total of 287 three-pointers were made across the 2021 Pac-12 Men’s & Women’s Basketball Tournaments. Funds raised from the basketball tournaments also benefited UNCF and National Urban League, also selected by the Pac-12 SALT.
