Community Partnerships & Community Development Activities
In 2019, HopeSouth partnered with many organizations and charities over the greater Abbeville region to better our community. Take a look at some of the wonderful projects we were privileged to help sponsor:
FRESHWATER COAST COMMUNITY FOUNDATION
CALHOUN FALLS CHARTER SCHOOL
ABBEVILLE COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT – Betty J Hall Scholarship Fund
ABBEVILLE COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR SCHOLARSHIPS
ABBEVILLE COUNTY FARMERS MARKET
ABBEVILLE COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT – TEACHER GRANTS
ABBEVILLE COUNTY ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT PUBLIC PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP
Over the past five years, we have also donated over $263,000 to various community groups and charitable organizations. In total, HopeSouth has invested over $263,962 for the improvement and support of our outstanding community.
Thank you for helping us achieve a great deal of progress in 2019. We were proud to pay out a dividend to members in 2019 of $70,236, ending the year with a net income of $422,732. Our greatest achievements include the many ways in which we used our capital to provide hope and improve lives. We are pleased to announce that we welcomed 417 new members to the credit union in 2019 and helped members get a new vehicle with over $3 Million; providing safe and reliable transportation.
We are proud to be a local credit union with a staff and volunteer team comprised entirely of individuals from right here in Abbeville County. HopeSouth is committed to investing in the community we serve because it’s the community where we live.
The impact of HopeSouth extends beyond our membership. Over the past five years, we have been able to donate over $263,000 to community groups and charitable organizations for the improvement of our outstanding community.
To our volunteer team, thank you for leading with excellence. To our dedicated staff, thank you for faithfully serving our members and improving our community. And to our valued members, thank you for your ongoing trust and support. 2019 was a wonderful year, and thanks to you, the future is bright here at HopeSouth. We are here for you during times of personal and public crises, and will do everything we can to help.
With gratitude, Faye Crocker, CEO
