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

Our Commitment

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.

Chinese Lantern Festival - Boasting more than 800 illuminated lantern displays, the festival will provide a stunning visual exhibition of Chinese art and culture at Huntsville Botanical Garden in the spring of 2019.

Enter “The Wild,” a world of life-size (sometimes larger than life) illuminated panda bears, lions, flamingos and more fauna from the world’s seven continents. Each of the lanterns is made by masters of the craft in Zigong, China’s center of lantern heritage. Others are made of small glass medicine bottles filled with colored liquid. In addition to the jaw-dropping lanterns, the festival features live demonstrations, including Kung Fu shows, shadow plays and a marketplace with Chinese folk art. The festival occurs nightly on Wednesday through Sunday evenings each week from 5:30 – 9:30 p.m.
