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.

close_quote_large The story of OnPoint in the community is so much more than a simple story. close_quote_large

It’s the moments that come from thousands of connections we make large and small each and every day. Our own success and continued growth could not be more closely tied to the future and well-being of the Pacific Northwest.

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.

Honoring Teachers that "Rock"

Congratulations to our 2021 Teachers Rock winner, Sarah Landels who teaches 4th grade in St. Helens! In celebration of National Teacher Day, OnPoint asked our members and social media followers to honor their favorite teacher and give them a chance to win $1,000. Here’s what made her nomination stand out:

“She has gone above and beyond for her students. She works to better herself and her students abilities every day. In these times of uncertainty she makes sure every student gets what they need even if it means purchasing supplies, food and clothing for that child. Going to each students house to deliver treats and gifts throughout the pandemic. Earning her master’s degree during the pandemic as well as teaching her students if you want something you have to try and succeed! She is always there for students events even if it means driving all day to watch the student play for 5 minutes or 5 hours.”

– Nominator, Wendy Landels
