American Heritage began as Budd Workers Credit Federal Credit Union on January 16, 1948 to provide people with a better alternative than banks to save and borrow money. The credit union started with just $12,776 in assets and one branch on Hunting Park Avenue in North Philadelphia, PA. In August 1987, the credit union changed its name to American Heritage to expand its membership and commitments to the communities it serves. American Heritage has since grown to over $4.5 billion in assets and proudly serves more than 280,000 members, making it one of the 75 largest credit unions in the country.
American Heritage began the anniversary year with in-office celebrations, where associates were celebrated for their commitment to the credit union movement as well as dedication to American Heritage’s members and communities. Associates commemorated the milestone with a 75th birthday luncheon.
“We couldn’t be more humbled and thankful for our members and communities who have supported American Heritage for 75 years. Though we continue to grow and expand as a financial institution, we have not lost sight of what is important: the people we serve,” stated Bruce K. Foulke, President & CEO of American Heritage. “Our members are at the heart of everything we do, and we would not be where we are, after 75 years, without them.”
