As the President & CEO of Ascentra Credit Union for over 20 years, Paul Lensmeyer believed in making a difference in the lives of our members, staff, and the communities we serve. After Paul’s unexpected passing, Ascentra Credit Union established the Ascentra Credit Union Foundation to ensure his legacy lives on.

In 2015, the Ascentra Credit Union Foundation made significant strides in achieving its mission while successfully implementing its first major fundraising event-- the Inaugural Paul Lensmeyer Golf Outing.  Our efforts have positively impacted many communities and organizations including multi-year commitments to Junior Achievement of the Heartland, River Bend Foodbank, and Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Mississippi Valley.  Since 2015, the foundation has awarded $245,474 in grants to organizations that work to economically and socially develop our region.  

To continue to raise funds for the foundation and celebrate Paul's spirit, the Paul Lensmeyer Golf Outing was established to create a day of fun and fellowship.  Thanks to the Lensmeyer family, Ascentra staff, friends of Paul, community-minded sponsors, and dozens of participants, a generous $53,516.62 has been raised to benefit the foundation over the past three years.
