Capitol Federal, the premier residential lender and savings bank in Kansas, invests in the communities it serves. Since 1893, the company and its employees have given back to its communities in countless ways including financial grants to local charities and employee volunteerism.
One of the causes that Capitol Federal has chosen to support is junior golf and the American Junior Golf Association. Thanks to the support of Capitol Federal, 99 junior golfers will have the opportunity to gain exposure for valuable college golf scholarships at the Lockton/Capitol Federal Kansas City Junior. The annual event will take place July 30-August 2 at Indian Hills Country Club.
“Capitol Federal is happy with its association with the AJGA,” said Capitol Federal Foundation President Jack H. Hamilton. “We feel our sponsorship of this tournament affords youth the opportunity to learn golf and its etiquette. It is a great way to prepare them for life and to encourage their pursuit of college scholarships to enhance their educational and golfing experiences.”
The AJGA is very appreciative of the support given by Capitol Federal. Because of the generosity of its sponsors like Capitol Federal, the AJGA is able to conduct first-class events at wonderful venues. And many of the participants will go on to earn college golf scholarships.
Helping high school students gain a college education is an initiative of Capitol Federal. Through its Foundation, grants are awarded to business students at seven Kansas colleges and universities who are high school graduates from Capitol Federal market areas with a minimum grade point average of 3.35.
These are just a couple of the ways that Capitol Federal is giving back to the communities it serves.
