Nationwide Title Clearing Sponsors Rocket Mortgage Classic to Help Bridge the Digital Divide in Detroit

(Palm Harbor, FL) June 29, 2021 – Nationwide Title Clearing, the leading post-closing services provider for the nation’s largest financial institutions, investors and servicers, is sponsoring the Quicken Loans 3rd Annual Rocket Mortgage Golf Classic in Detroit July 1-4.

The event will focus on raising funds to support the “Changing the Course” initiative which was launched in 2020 in light of the profound impact of COVID-19 in Detroit and the clear need for greater and more equitable digital connectivity in America’s least connected major city. The vision of this multi-year campaign is to ensure every Detroit resident has access to the internet, technology and digital literacy training they deserve within a 10-minute walk of their home.

“We are honored to support the Rocket Mortgage Changing the Course initiative” said Chief Revenue Officer Danny Byrnes. “Too many Detroit residents miss out on opportunities for education and employment by not having the ability to get online.”

The Rocket Mortgage Classic generated more than $2.7 million for nonprofits from proceeds by Detroit’s second annual PGA TOUR event.
