Community Involvement

Horizons Helping Hands

New Horizons Credit Union believes in giving back to the community and living the credit union industry philosophy of "People Helping People." For this reason, we have named our community efforts - Horizons Helping Hands. New Horizons continues to assist with sponsorships and donations, and we also realize the importance of putting some skin in the game and volunteering!

During 2017, New Horizons Credit Union is committed to help: Making Strides Against Breast Cancer , Penelope House in Mobile, AL, and the Ronald McDonald House as our Corporate Charities. However, we also support many other worthwhile community endeavors such as:

Hi-Q Academic Competition

Since 1986, New Horizons has been a proud sponsor of Hi-Q, the oldest continuing academic competition in the U.S. Hi-Q is vital to a quality education, as it encourages academic achievement, initiative and good sportsmanship. Bob Grip, from FOX10, presides as the Quiz Master, asking students questions from 13 subjects, ranging from standard high school courses to general scholastic knowledge. The competition will begin in January and go through March. The first place winner receives $2,000 and a trophy, while second place receives $1,500, and third place receives $1,000.


For over 25 years, New Horizons Credit Union has awarded $1,000 scholarships to local high school seniors seeking to continue higher education. This year, we will award five, $1,000 scholarships to deserving high school seniors. We choose the winners in May of each year, and we encourage all high school seniors to apply. Applications for the 2017 have been submitted, check back on our website for the announcement of our scholarship winners! 

Dora Maxwell Award Winner

New Horizons Credit Union has been honored with the League of Southeastern Credit Union's Dora Maxwell Award for exhibiting social responsibility in the community. To be recognized, a credit union must show strong examples of fulfilling the credit union philosophy of "People Helping People, " and New Horizons Credit Union clearly demonstrated this with its community activism.
