At Alive Credit Union, we are dedicated to improving the lives of our members and others in the communities we serve. Through financial education, community involvement, and member outreach, we've made a difference in the lives of our members for over 60 years!

Helping our communities

Our credit union and employees are committed not only to serving you, our valued members, but we're also dedicated to serving our community. Everyone can make a difference, and we are proud to be supporters of events created by and for our field of membership. We are also home to the CARES committee, a community outreach group consisting of Alive Credit Union employees who contribute their time and talents, as well as organize donations to benefit our local communities.

Eat | Shop | Play Neighborhood Market

In May 2016, we held our first Eat | Shop | Play neighborhood market event at our main office. From arts & crafts and a cash cube to a bounce house for the kids, we had great participation from our local community business partners and membership.

Mad City Money

Every year, the League of Southeastern Credit Unions host an interactive simulation where teens adopt new identities that include instant families, careers and other financial responsibilities. Mad City Money, filled with mock merchants, also includes pushy car salesperson and a commission-based realtor, who give teens a true taste of the real world. This year we participated and had a great turnout! Keep an eye out for details on next year's Mad City Money event.

Raising Awareness

We're also strong supporters of health research to improve the wellness and quality of life of those living in our communities. You'll regularly find the employees of Alive participating in events like the American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk, the March of Dimes for Babies and the American Heart Association's Heart Walk.

Education

Alive Credit Union offers complimentary financial education workshops for our Select Employer Groups (SEGs). The sessions are conducted on-site at your place of business for your convenience and to encourage participation. The sessions are held year-round and are typically about an hour long. We select a time that is convenient for the group and also provide all materials. Some of the topics range from Have You Seen My Budget, My Credit Score Is...WHAT?, Tips on Car Buying, Credit Unions versus Banks and Financial Success. Individuals that complete multiple courses in our workplace education series will receive certificates from our program.

Scholarship Program

Each year Alive awards the Betty M. Collins Memorial Scholarship to a member currently pursuing a career in healthcare from an accredited institution. The scholarship is given in memory of one of our first volunteer board members. Betty Collins was devoted to the idea of a credit union early on when it was just a small operation in the backroom of BlueCross. She was instrumental in our success and recognized in the healthcare field, both through her affiliation with BlueCross and her long volunteer service at Memorial Hospital.

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer

In support of the American Cancer Society and the fight against breast cancer, Alive employees will be Making Strides Against Breast Cancer again this October. Ask any office how you can join our team!
