We believe in giving back to our community. Alabama Teachers employees and volunteers work to provide credit union resources to consumers through financial education, event participation, and sponsorships. We are dedicated to the credit union philosophy of "people helping people" and are committed to our members as we all teach — and learn — together.
Some highlights of our community commitment include:
- International Credit Union Day
- First Friday, Downtown Gadsden
- Centre Fall Festival and Kids Fun Run
- Northeast Alabama Heart Walk - American Heart Association
- Superman 5k
- Kickoff Classic for the Kids Golf Tournament
- Relay for Life
- Noble Street Festival
Alabama Teachers is happy to help non-profit groups and their fund-raising efforts in communities surrounding our branch offices whenever possible. Because we have several offices in our communities, many requests are received each week. We ask that you follow our guidelines and provide us with advanced notice.
Again, thank you for considering Alabama Teachers when planning your event. We appreciate opportunities to sponsor worthy causes throughout the communities that we serve. Good luck with your activities!
