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.

The Righteous Brothers

February 9, 2020

Location: Oxford, AL

Join Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Bill Medley and his new partner Bucky Heard, as they take you on a nostalgic journey through the legendary musical stylings of one of the greatest rock and roll duos of all time. The original other half of the duo, Bobby Hatfield, died in 2003. When one half of your famous duo passes away, it can be challenging to forge ahead even when your heart yearns for the type of music you've been living your entire life. And then, sometimes, a chance comes along that allows you to revisit your favorites with the same sort of loving feeling. For Bill Medley, the chance to resurrect the Righteous Brothers after the death of longtime singing partner came out of the blue when he went to see a friend perform.
