Carolina Trust has seven convenient branch locations throughout northeastern South Carolina and is committed to serving area schools and local charities. We actively demonstrate the credit union philosophy of "People Helping People" by supporting non-profit organizations such as the local chapters of March of Dimes, the American Red Cross, and the American Heart Association. Since 2011, employees raised over an average of $2,000 annually for local charities through our Blue Jeans for Charity initiative.
In addition, Credit Union employees frequently make presentations to elementary, middle and high school students regarding personal financial management and recognize Horry County School Teacher of the Year nominees. Since 2007, Carolina Trust has partnered with Horry Telephone Cooperative, Inc. to offer the Key Scholarship award to two graduating high school seniors within our field of membership who plan to attend either Coastal Carolina or Francis Marion University.
For almost 10 consecutive years, Carolina Trust has received the Myrtle Beach Herald's Readers' Choice award for Best Credit Union. We have also received the Carolina Forest Chronicle's and Horry Independent's Readers' Choice award for Best Credit Union for the past 8 years. Carolina Trust is honored to receive these awards because voters are local folks who live, work, and play right here along the Grand Strand. We are proud to receive such recognition which affirms we are a better way of banking.
Carolina Trust has served the financial needs of members and supported local communities since 1958. Through competitive pricing, innovative services and personal attention, we will continue to build our members' unique financial cooperative one trusted relationship at a time.
