Southeast Financial Gives Back
Southeast Financial is dedicated to giving back to the communities we serve. It's how we stay true to the credit union motto—People Helping People.
Throughout the year, we support a variety of charitable organizations in Tennessee, Kentucky, and Mississippi. We're proud to be making a real difference in our communities.
Be sure to check the Southeast Financial newsletter and follow us on social media to keep up with what we're doing. To find out about upcoming events or how you can participate, contact us.
Our largest single fundraising event is the Southeast Financial Golf Classic, a day of food, fun, and friendly competition benefiting United Cerebral Palsy of Middle Tennessee and Hope Clinic for Women. Since we began partnering with these two charities in 2010, we've donated over $150,000. Interested in participating as a sponsor or player? Email us.
Each year, Southeast Financial employees have the opportunity to pledge a percentage of their paychecks to United Way. United Way fights for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in the community. Over the past 15 years, employees have donated almost $170,000.
Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital Vanderbilt at Williamson Medical Center
At Christmas, Southeast Financial partners with CWA Local 3808 to put together stockings and baskets for children visiting the hospital during the holidays. Opened in 2015, the children's hospital provides specialized pediatric care. Williamson Medical Center's emergency room sees more than 6,500 children a year.
Red Cross Blood Drive
Each year, Southeast Financial hosts at least two blood drives in Middle Tennessee. Since 2017, we've collected over 60 donations, which the Red Cross can use to save 180 lives.
Members and employees work together to raise funds and collect donations for a variety of non-profit organizations throughout the year. These include:
