Press Release

PORTLAND, Ore., February 27, 2020—OnPoint Community Credit Union today announced a $38,300 contribution to OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital Foundation following the credit union’s successful Refer a Friend campaign, which ran in October and November of 2019. OnPoint’s donation will help provide free housing to families traveling from out of town for specialized care at OSHU Doernbecher’s new Gary and Christine Rood Family Pavilion.

In 2018 alone, OHSU Doernbecher saw more than 70,000 patients from every county in Oregon and SW Washington for a total of more than 289,000 visits. Approximately 40 percent of those patients come from outside the immediate area.

“Our Refer a Friend campaign is one way we directly engage OnPoint members in giving back to our community,” said Rob Stuart, President and Chief Executive Officer, OnPoint Community Credit Union. “We are fortunate to have OHSU Doernbecher’s lifesaving experts and facilities so close to home, and we are honored to support families who must travel to take advantage of the hospital’s world class care.”

During the two-month campaign, OnPoint members invited friends, family and business associates to join OnPoint. For every new referred member who opened a personal or business checking account, OnPoint made a $50 donation to OHSU Doernbecher. As part of the campaign, both the referring member and the new member also received $50 from OnPoint.

This is OnPoint’s second Refer a Friend contribution to OHSU Doernbecher since the campaign started in 2018.

“OnPoint and its members have been longtime supporters of OHSU Doernbecher,” said Sarah Larson, Director of Corporate and Community Development, OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital Foundation. “Campaigns like Refer a Friend bring our community together to raise critical funds to support children and families staying at the Rood Family Pavilion—a home-away-from-home for families who must travel to Portland for treatment at the hospital. Thanks to OnPoint, more families will be able to stay nearby, and heal together.”
