NFM Lending announced today they will make a $60,000 donation to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as part of its new “Chipping Away at Childhood Cancer” program, an initiative with PGA Golfer Tom Lewis. NFM, who is a corporate sponsor of Lewis, committed $2,500 to St. Jude for every birdie Mr. Lewis made in the World Golf Championships-FedEx St. Jude Invitational held July 30 – August 2, 2020 at TPC Southwind in Memphis, TN. Lewis made 24 birdies, the most of any golfer in the tournament, on his way to a 2nd place finish.
NFM Lending’s CEO, David Silverman, has been a big supporter of St. Jude and its mission for many years. “St. Jude has been a charitable focus for me since 2012,” said Silverman. “Their transparency on how donations are used to treat and cure children with cancer is unparalleled. I had the opportunity to tour St. Jude and it is inspiring and humbling. NFM is grateful to support this worthy cause.”
Mr. Silverman announced that the donation to St. Jude is just the beginning of a new level of support and partnership NFM will have with St. Jude. The “Chipping Away at Childhood Cancer” program will follow Lewis on the PGA Tour, and NFM will continue to donate money for every birdie and eagle he makes throughout the year. If he wins any of the PGA events, NFM Lending will make an additional donation of $100,000.
The new program is part of NFM’s C.A.R.E.S. initiative which focuses on the success of the family unit and the right of all people to have a safe, secure, and healthy place to live and grow.
