Moving Our Communities Forward by Giving Back

Driven by our commitment to community giving, which has totaled over $2 million dollars over the last five years, the credit union “people helping people” philosophy is part of our DNA. We believe in doing the right thing for our employees, members, and communities.

Where We Focus Our Efforts

Removing barriers in our communities and inspiring hope is the purpose of our work every day. I’ve seen firsthand how the Credit Union Movement has enabled individuals and families to achieve their goals and improve their quality of life. That’s what we strive for at Unitus.

Unitus Branch at Junior Achievement BizTown

In October 2023, we proudly opened a Unitus Branch at Junior Achievement of Oregon and SW Washington’s BizTown, becoming the first credit union in the region to establish a branch at this popular learning experience in a simulated town.

JA BizTown combines in-class learning with a day-long visit to a simulated town. This popular learning experience allows elementary school students to operate banks, manage restaurants, write checks, and vote for mayor.

Students can connect the dots between what they learn in school and the real world.

Community Support

Here are just some organizations we’re passionate about supporting:

Community Development Mission

As a credit union dedicated to community development, Unitus is committed to promoting community development by breaking down barriers to accessibility for every community and household, irrespective of their socioeconomic status. Part of this commitment includes purposefully providing education and inclusive access to affordable credit and services to low-income consumers and people living in local low-income investment areas. We direct our services to improving financial wellbeing for families and promoting community development in our local low-income communities. Our approach is centered around inclusivity, ensuring that we provide support throughout their life’s defining moments. This holistic approach inspires hope and confidence, positioning Unitus as a trusted partner within our community. Our commitment to this effort aims to close equity gaps and foster financial well-being for all.
