70 Years in the Making: Join American Heritage in Celebrating our 70th Anniversary

Guess who turned 70 years old in 2018? That’s right. This year, American Heritage Credit Union is celebrating 70 years of history, milestones, and achievements. And while we’re happy to be in the company of so many others who are turning 70 this year (we see you Elton John, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Ferrari, and Larry David), we’re especially excited to share this celebration with our members and the greater Philadelphia community.

As of January 14, 2018, we welcomed our 70th year with open arms and lots of celebrating—and the party is just getting started. To commemorate this anniversary the best way we know how, we’ll be celebrating all year-long and hope that you can celebrate with us.


70 Years Worth Celebrating: A Quick Look at Historic Milestones

As a Philadelphia-based credit union, American Heritage Credit Union has remained committed to treating our members like family and our communities like home over the past 70 years. Since we opened our doors in 1948, we have continued to grow our credit union, while also giving back to our members and the community. That’s why, we are especially proud of the below accolades, which include some of our most recent highlights from our 70 year timeline.

  • Giving Back: Through our Kids-N-Hope Foundation, American Heritage Credit Union has donated more than $1.3 million to CHOP, the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, among other causes
  • Branch Expansion: In order to best serve our members in the areas where they live and work, we have extended our branch footprint to include 35 branches, with more coming in 2018.
  • Continued Growth: In 2017, we crossed the $2 billion asset growth mark, now making us the 116th largest credit union in the United States
