SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BofI Federal Bank (the “Bank”), the nationwide bank subsidiary of BofI Holding, Inc. (NASDAQ: BOFI) (“BofI” or the “Company”), is proud to announce its continuing support of the U.S. military and their families through its sponsorship of the SEAL Family Foundation and One Summit. This is the fourth year BofI has supported the SEAL Family Foundation.
“We appreciate the generous support from BofI,” said Natasha Montazeri, Development Director of SEAL Family Foundation. “Their support and commitment to the courageous warriors and their families allows us to help provide a variety of support programs to family members in our Naval Special Warfare communities back home.”
BofI was a Captain level sponsor for the SEAL Family Foundation’s “Family First” San Diego Dinner Gala, helping raise over half a million dollars to be used to support individuals and families in the Naval Special Warfare community. The Bank also supported One Summit (https://onesummit.org/), a program where Navy SEALs help mentor children with cancer through a series of experiential learning programs.
“One Summit is proud to partner with BofI Federal Bank,” stated Dianne Lynch, Executive Director of One Summit. “Their support has enabled us to expand our Climb for Courage program into San Diego, building strong relationships between our little warriors – pediatric cancer patients and their siblings – and our volunteer Navy SEALs mentors. These relationships will provide the additional source of strength and encouragement both warriors need to continue in their fight. We are excited to continue working together to build resilient communities.”
