OnPoint Community Credit Union and its Employees Donated More Than $63,000 to Four United Way Chapters

OnPoint Community Credit Union, based in Portland, Oregon, and its employees recently donated $63,973 in 2023 to four United Way chapters serving Oregon and Southwest Washington.

The donation was part of OnPoint’s 17th annual employee-led fundraising campaign, benefiting United Ways in communities the credit union serves. OnPoint employees raised $53,973 and combined it with an additional $10,000 corporate contribution from OnPoint.

“OnPoint believes everyone should have access to education, shelter, crisis support, and other essential services,” said OnPoint’s President and CEO Rob Stuart. “We are grateful for the United Ways’ service to the region and honored to continue supporting their work to improve our communities.”

Each year, OnPoint invites its more than 1,100 employees to make voluntary individual contributions to United Way through fundraisers such as prize drawings, vacation raffles, and a competition between Ducks and Beavers fans. OnPoint’s donation will help fund health, housing, and financial stability programs that provide kids and families with equitable opportunities to build a good quality of life.

Examples include:

  • United Way of the Columbia-Willamette’s Resilient Families Initiatives, which helps provide families and communities of color equitable access to education, housing, and disaster and crisis response resources.
  • United Way of Linn, Benton, and Lincoln Counties’ Linn Can, which promotes the safety and well-being of Linn County’s children by raising public awareness about the impacts of abuse and neglect.
  • United Way of Central Oregon’s KIDS Center, which provides no-cost evaluations, family support, and therapy to victims of child abuse.
  • United Way of the Mid-Willamette Valley’s Taylor’s House, a shelter that offers safety, stability, structure, and resources to at-risk, homeless, runaway, and street youth.

“In addressing critical community needs ranging from early education and equity to housing stability, we are delighted to receive support from a local organization like OnPoint,” said President and CEO of United Way of the Columbia-Willamette Kelly O’Lague. “The ongoing support of OnPoint’s dedicated employees is invaluable, enabling us to sustain our mission of providing equitable access to essential services for the most vulnerable communities in our region.”

The United Way donation comes on the heels of OnPoint’s record-breaking year for its annual giving program, donating a total of $2.5 million to non-profits in Oregon and Southwest Washington.
