Getting ready for that annual summer vacation? With a little extra planning and knowing a few travel secrets, you could save yourself hundreds of dollars this summer.
When I was a kid, I loved going back to school. I looked forward to seeing my friends, getting new shoes, picking out an outfit for the first day….and, of course, getting new school supplies. I impatiently waited for my mom to get the supply list from my new teacher, hoping it would include the requirement that I get the BIG box of crayons (you know, the one with the built-in sharpener). Alas, that big box never appeared on my list, so I settled for a box of 16 or 24, along with my #2 pencils, spiral notebooks, Elmer’s glue, and a box of Kleenex. Even with that small disappointment, I was excited to have all of these new things. I was ready for school.
Now is the perfect time for a mid-year financial check up! Have you been progressing towards your annual savings goals? If not, OnPoint’s 52-week money challenge is a great way to help you save money. We’re over halfway through the challenge, but it’s never too late to join in.
The warm (or rather hot) summer weather has officially brought everyone out of hibernation! Parks, streets and sidewalks are filled with members of our local community. This July, OnPoint is sponsoring a variety of events in the Portland Metro Area – so, stop by our booth and say hello!
May 24, 2016 marked the 7th Annual OnPoint Prize for Excellence in Education Award ceremony. Since the inception of this program OnPoint has recognized 50 outstanding teachers throughout Oregon and Southwest Washington. This year we received a tremendous number of extremely worthy and inspiring applications.
OnPoint members enjoy connecting with us via social media. Did you know OnPoint uses Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, YouTube (and more!) to connect with members?
Summer is finally here – and we’re looking forward to sunny, clear skies, fun local events, and the chance to mingle with our neighbors in our local community. When you’re out and about this June, make sure to look for the OnPoint booth:
OnPoint has teamed up with BALANCE to provide a wealth of knowledge, money management tools, and counseling to help you with the financial challenges that life often brings.

However, with more money comes more responsibility, so we’ve provided some food for thought when it comes to being financially smart.
OnPoint has always understood that investing in education is one of the best ways to build thriving communities. From May 10-24, OnPoint will host its annual #TeachersRock social media contest as part of our OnPoint Prize for Excellence in Education campaign.
