InRoads Credit Union Donates Nearly $140,000 In Community Support

InRoads Credit Union, in partnership with their members and employees, contributed $138,853 towards 52 local charitable organizations, schools and scholarships during 2023.

“During 2023, InRoads Credit Union supported Columbia County with generous donations and community involvement,” Senior Account Executive Cailyn Tegel said. “Donations from InRoads benefitted 43 local Columbia County organizations such as: Riverside Community Outreach, Habitat for Humanity, Columbia City Community Library and Columbia Pacific Food Bank.”

As a strong advocate for financial wellness in the community, InRoads channeled its resources to make a positive impact in Columbia, Washington and Multnomah counties. Specifically, $97,505 was donated to local schools, $36,348 to nonprofit organizations and $5,000 was awarded to college-bound students.

“We are more than just a credit union. We are a team of people with a mission to make a real impact in our communities,” stated Nathan Cox, President/CEO of InRoads Credit Union. “Every year when we look back on our accomplishments, it’s not just about the dollars donated. It’s about the actual lives we’ve touched and changed — that’s what drives us.”

Through its innovative Team Up for Schools program, InRoads’ members were offered one of three high-school themed debit cards that would automatically contribute five cents from InRoads to the corresponding school for every debit card transaction. In 2023, the program resulted in raising $97,505 to support those local schools.

InRoads’ commitment to community well-being extends beyond philanthropy, impacting more than 1,272 people through “Random Acts of Kindness” initiatives. Team members donated their time buying food for a local food bank, making Valentine’s Day cards for seniors, supporting volunteer firefighters in training and much more.
