It’s been nearly 90 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.
In 1932, 16 school teachers got together to create a safe place to save their money and provide low-cost loans to other teachers and their families. They named it Portland Teachers Credit Union.
As our community grew, we grew right along with it. In 2005, we were granted a community charter in Oregon and Southwest Washington, allowing us to expand our field of membership. To reflect this growth, we changed our name to what you know us as today, OnPoint Community Credit Union.
OnPoint has been improving the lives of our members and the communities we serve—including Portland, Vancouver, Eugene and Bend—for over 85 years. In that time, we’ve grown to be the largest community-owned financial institution in Oregon.
Celebrating our community partnerships
We take pride in fostering connections with our members and the community. That’s why we’ve taken care to develop ongoing relationships with organizations that reflect the interests of our membership.
