Pathways Financial Credit Union has partnered with Final Third Foundation (F3) to support F3’s mission to Grow the Game and Level the Playing Field - on and off the pitch.
Pathways, a full-service non-profit financial institution, which believes in helping their members find their path to better banking, and ultimately financial freedom, has agreed to sponsor the Sport Park at Easton, which will now be named Pathways Park at Easton.
Deanna Barzak, VP of Business Services for Pathways, says, “We are so excited to be working with an organization like Final Third Foundation. At Pathways we believe in creating a platform for an individual to succeed by giving them financial freedom. In a way, F3 is the same - they use the global game as a platform with the goal to create successful people that are able to interact with all communities. I hope we can strengthen our relationship with F3 year after year. We believe in what they do and how they are doing it.”
The support from Pathways will allow for F3 to continue to lower the cost for its partners to use the park, and thus, level the playing field. F3 partners include organizations like Ohio Youth Academy, Galacticos FC, Ibada ya Kiswahili, Columbus Lions Soccer Academy, The Work University and Columbus East Soccer Association .
Benjamin Levey, Executive Director for F3, states, “There are definitely synergies between both organizations that exist. It seems like the perfect fit and we are excited to move forward and work together with Pathways Financial Credit Union. The name Pathways Park resonates with me and what F3 is all about - creating a pathway for each individual to succeed.”
Pathways Park at Easton is located near Easton Town Center at 4475 Sunbury Road Columbus, OH 43219.
