Since its inception in 1996, the American Heritage Kids-N-Hope Foundation has raised over $1,340,000 for the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Through the support of the foundation, the hospital is able to offer a Music Therapy Program to the patients and has allowed the hospital to purchase musical equipment, provide a music therapist and bring in musical performers specially trained in assisting children with developmental disabilities.

In 1996, American Heritage became the first credit union in the country to form its own charitable organization when it began the Kids-N-Hope Foundation. American Heritage employee-run events, including the Gelatin Olympics, Car Show, and Golf Classic, help raise funds for the Kids-N-Hope Foundation throughout the year.

American Heritage Credit Union is a $2 billion, member-owned financial cooperative serving over 800 Workplace Partners. It is the country's 116th largest Credit Union with over 168,000 members and 35 branches in the Philadelphia, Bucks, Montgomery, Delaware and Camden Counties.
