Coconino County Branches Fundraise for Killip Elementary School Chess Team’s Nationals Trip

Our Pioneer Title Agency always has fun projects going on, especially thanks to our Pioneer Title Agency in Action program, which encourages each branch and employee to be active in their neighborhoods, giving back in time, fundraising efforts and financial contributions. This year, we’ve launched a new philanthropy program through our Agency in Action program called “Old School,” which encourages each office to team up with a local school and give back to them in some way.

The Coconino County branches decided to help fund the Killip Elementary School chess team’s trip to the United States Chess Federation Supernationals VI, taking place in Nashville, Tenn.,  May 12-14, as part of Old School!

The Supernationals tournament is one of the largest chess tournaments in the country and occurs only once every four years for chess players in kindergarten through high school.

To raise funds for the trip, the Coconino branches are offering employees a full week of “Dress Down” days for a $25 contribution, and employees are encouraged to wear buttons and keep a donation jar on their desk to spark a conversation about the fundraiser with Pioneer customers. Additionally, Killip Elementary School organized a Chick-fil-A fundraiser, which the four Flagstaff branches ensured they ordered from so that 25 percent of their food costs were donated to funding the trip.
