Giving back.

Community is an important part of who we are. We were the first credit union to lay down roots in Clackamas County, more than 50 years ago, and are still committed to giving back to our neighbors. We support local organizations through fundraising, donations, and volunteering throughout the year.

Forest of Arts

Mount Hood Search and Rescue Council

We are very thankful to Hopkins Demonstration Forest, Three Rivers Artist Guild, and all the volunteers for turning out a great community event. A big thank you to Mt. Hood Search and Rescue for facilitating radio communication for the event and being on site in case of a medical emergency. An estimated 800 to 900 people came out to Forest of Arts October 12th and 13th to view a large collection of art, see art in the making, and to make some of their own. Thanks to Sound Dr. Media for documenting Forest of Arts. Here is a quick rough cut of some of the sights and sounds from the event.

Clackamas Supports Search and Rescue

Clackamas has donated $10,000 to purchase new satellite radios for Mount Hood Search and Rescue Council. This is a volunteer organization which tirelessly and selflessly gives to help save lives. Rescuers use vacation time, miss holidays with family, and put themselves in great peril to help people in desperate situations.

Clackamas has supported Mount Hood Search and Rescue Council for years and is excited to that this most recent donation will help aid in future rescues. Watch KOIN News video coverage. »

Relay for Life

We are very proud of our credit union’s Relay for Life team, "Shark Bait", which participated in the Oregon City/West Linn Relay. Team members braved repeated submersions while staffing the dunk tank, helping raise money to help find a cure for cancer. The Clackamas team was one of the top fundraisers.

Our own Business Development Specialist, Levi Manselle, played cello for the Luminaria Ceremony, a moving event where participants remember those who have been lost to cancer. If you would like to learn more or support Relay for Life please visit www.relayforlife.org.
