America First CU Partners with Las Vegas Raiders to Present SafeNest with a $20,000

Las Vegas – March 11, 2021 – America First Credit Union, in collaboration with the Las Vegas Raiders and the Raiders Foundation, is donating $20,000 to support SafeNest, Nevada’s largest nonprofit dedicated to ending the epidemic of domestic violence.

As part of the inaugural First Downs for the Hometown, for each Raiders’ first down at Allegiant Stadium, America First Credit Union is donating $100 to the Raiders Foundation — the charitable arm of the Las Vegas Raiders organization. During the 2020 season, the Raiders secured 193 first downs at home, resulting in $19,300. Rounding up, the credit union will now donate the money to SafeNest to help with the organization’s commitment to providing vital crisis services and shelter residents and anyone else who may be experiencing abuse during this time of uncertainty.

“America First Credit Union’s comprehensive partnership with the Raiders will make a huge difference across this organization and the more than 20,000 clients it serves annually in Las Vegas, Henderson, North Las Vegas, Boulder City, Mesquite, and surrounding rural areas,” said AFCU president and CEO John B. Lund. “With our First Downs for the Hometown, cheering on the Raiders as they got first downs at Allegiant Stadium became a doubly satisfying experience.

”We are grateful to America First Credit Union for using the “First Down for the Hometown” program to make a positive impact off the field through a donation to support the great community work being advanced by SafeNest,” said Las Vegas Raiders President Marc Badain.


Proudly celebrating 81 years of servicing members and a long-standing history, America First Credit Union has become one of the largest, most stable and most progressive credit unions in the country, and has remained a member-owned, not-for-profit cooperative financial institution. Today, America First has 128 locations, and is the eighth largest credit union in assets in the United States with over $14.5 billion, and the sixth largest credit union in membership in America with more than 1,171,373 members.


The Raiders began play in the American Football League in 1960 and are in their 62nd year of professional football competition, including the last 52 years as a member club of the National Football League. Over seven memorable decades, the Raiders won one AFL Championship, three NFL Championships, and four American Football Conference Championships; participated in five Super Bowls; played in 14 Championship games; won or tied for 17 Division titles; reached the playoffs in 22 seasons; played in 44 postseason games; and finished 37 seasons at .500 or better. With their appearance in Super Bowl XXXVII, the Raiders became the first NFL team to play in Super Bowls in four different decades. In addition, the Raiders are proud to contribute to community engagement, youth initiatives, environmental and multicultural awareness, and global outreach. The Raiders played in Oakland, Calif., from their inception through 1982, relocated to Los Angeles in 1983, and moved back to Oakland in 1995, and made Las Vegas its home in 2020. The Raiders base training and business operations in Henderson, Nev. and play home games at Allegiant Stadium, a fully enclosed, state-of-the-art facility with a capacity of 65,000 located adjacent to the world-famous Las Vegas Strip. The Raiders maintain a global presence and communicate with the worldwide Raider Nation through the team's official website and social media channels.
