Community Involvement

Giving back to make a difference.

At American Heritage, we live by the values of community. We give back to where we live by fundraising and supporting events. With the support of our members, American Heritage has earned recognition from peer credit unions as a national leader for charitable involvement.

We make donations on request to local, national, and international causes. The Board of Directors supports World Council initiatives and disaster victims through CUNA Foundation on an “as-needed” basis throughout the year.

In addition to working with third-party not-for-profit organizations, American Heritage has developed a number of community involvement and assistance programs including:


Founded by American Heritage Federal Credit Union in 1996, the Kids-N-Hope Foundation helps local children receive specialized care and support.
