Local roots that still hold true.

It’s been more than 88 years since a handful of schoolteachers joined together to form our credit union. They didn’t do it for profit. They did it to help one another. After all, that’s what community is all about.

Celebrating Our Community

We take pride in fostering connections with our members and our neighbors. That’s why getting out into the community is so important to us. We strive to create ongoing and meaningful relationships with the people and organizations within our community.

We celebrate our community by getting involved in the areas we serve.

Supporting the Black Community

At OnPoint we value inclusivity, which means standing up for those who have been unjustly targeted today and those at risk of being oppressed tomorrow. OnPoint is supporting organizations fighting for equal rights for our Black community, including the following.

COVID-19 Pandemic Support

OnPoint continues to support local organizations in an effort to provide assistance to all of the areas we serve that are impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Along with OnPoint donations, our employees are also supporting organizations through volunteer opportunities.

OnPoint employees volunteer for Meals on Wheels Portland to deliver food to vulnerable seniors during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Community Impact

As we grow, our responsibility to the places we call home grows as well. With each new branch, our roots grow deeper and so does our impact—allowing us to invest in our communities by creating new jobs, providing more robust services to our members and forging strong relationships with our community partners.

OnPoint Prize

We understand that investing in education is one of the best ways to build thriving communities. The OnPoint Prize for Excellence in Education campaign celebrates innovative teaching methods that spark enthusiasm and passion in students, parents and their peers. Each year, the campaign awards two educators with the Educator of the Year award, paying their mortgage for the entire school year, as well as donating $2,500 to each of their schools. We also award Community Builder awards, granting $2,000 to four schools to complete a project of their choice. In addition, one lucky school, selected by community votes, is granted $5,000.
