America Saves proudly announces New Horizons Credit Union as one of only twelve recipients of the 2020 Designation of Savings Excellence award chosen from over 200 banks and credit unions across the nation that participated in this year’s America Saves Week.
In its sixth year, the America Saves’ Designation of Savings Excellence is awarded to financial institutions that display exceptional achievement by motivating individuals to become more financially stable. New Horizons Credit Union is one such financial institution that went above and beyond with Direct Deposit, New Start Checking, GreenPath Financial Wellness, and Horizons Heroes Accounts.
“Their extraordinary efforts to encourage their members to save money and establish an automatic savings plan during America Saves Week deserves recognition, particularly as the COVID-19 pandemic reached a crisis stage just a few days after America Saves Week concluded,” said George Barany, Dir. of America Saves. “We are proud to recognize these significant achievements.”
“We are thrilled to receive this designation,” comments Edith Franklin – President/CEO of New Horizons Credit Union. “New Horizons Credit Union believes in financial education and offering members and non-members alike free resources through our website at NewHCU.org.”
America Saves Week is an annual event that inspires Americans to make a simple savings action plan that starts or increases their savings. The event is coordinated by America Saves, with input and support from over 35 organizations that include federal government agencies such as the FDIC, FEMA, and the Department of Labor, as well as nonprofits and Cooperative Extension educators.
