Jacksonville, FL –April 19, 2018 – EverBank, a division of TIAA, FSB, announced its renewed commitment to the Jacksonville Jaguars and the community at Thursday’s State of the Franchise event. As EverBank takes on its new name, TIAA Bank, EverBank Field will be renamed TIAA Bank Field.
The upcoming season will bring exciting changes to the Jaguars partnership. The name change will take effect this summer, including an update to all stadium signage and the launch of an inspiring community partnership with the Jaguars.
“Our bank’s relationship with the Jaguars – on and off the field – goes back to 2010, and we’re very proud to continue this great partnership for years to come at TIAA Bank Field,” said Blake Wilson, president and chief executive officer of EverBank. “Jacksonville has always been our bank’s home, and together with the Jaguars we’re committed to continuing to make a difference in the communities where we work and live.”
Together, the Jaguars and EverBank are launching the One Team. One Home. initiative. The two organizations will each contribute $1 million over the next five years to help build or repair homes in Northeast Florida. The homes will be part of a collaboration with various Habitat for Humanity affiliates, TIAA, EverBank, and Jaguars employees and players, as well as fans and volunteers.
In addition, EverBank will contribute additional dollars to fund home builds and repair projects in other counties around the state where TIAA has an existing presence. In total, EverBank is committing to saving or building 100 homes in Florida through financial contributions and volunteerism in celebration of TIAA’s 100th anniversary.
“From day one, our partnership with EverBank has been built on a shared commitment to community betterment through the power and strength of the Jacksonville Jaguars,” said Jaguars President Mark Lamping. “We’re proud to continue and expand this tradition of service with EverBank, soon to be TIAA Bank, giving deserving First Coast families a solid foundation upon which to thrive while strengthening the bond between the Jaguars, TIAA Bank and the Jacksonville community.”
The Jacksonville Jaguars offer an annual State of the Franchise presentation to media and invited guests each spring to provide an update on the team’s business initiatives.
