At OnPoint, we strive to be the leader in delivering extraordinary experiences and value to our community.
Our purpose is to build strong communities by supporting financial growth and well-being, one person at a time.
We accomplish this by following our guiding principles:
Pursue innovation that values our members’ time and helps them achieve their goals.
Vest employees with the authority to deliver superior service and advice.
Always do the right thing and act with the utmost integrity.
Be the champion of education.
Ensure the safety and soundness of our institution to allow for long range sustainability.
OnPoint was founded in 1932 as Portland Teachers Credit Union. Sixteen schoolteachers gathered to create a safe place to save their money and to provide low-cost loans for those looking to build a better life.
Since then, our mission has remained the same – to promote the financial well-being of our members and to ensure the safety and soundness of our credit union. Keeping that mission alive has prompted a few changes along the way.
In 2005, Portland Teachers Credit Union was granted a community charter, meaning we were able to serve anyone living or working in Benton, Clackamas, Columbia, Lane, Linn, Marion, Multnomah, Polk, Washington and Yamhill counties in Oregon. To reflect our expanded membership, we changed our name to OnPoint Community Credit Union. In 2007, we amended our charter to include those living or working in Clark and Skamania counties in Washington. In 2009, our charter grew again as we moved to include those living or working in Deschutes County in Oregon. And in 2011, our charter was further expanded to include those living or working in Crook and Jefferson counties in Oregon.
OnPoint has been improving the lives of our members and the communities we serve including the cities of Portland, Vancouver, Eugene, and Bend for over 80 years. We have grown to be the largest community-owned financial institution in Oregon with over 364,000 loyal members. We look forward to building on our legacy of service and making dreams come true for many generations to come.
