Northwest Resource strives to build a better neighborhood through improving the financial well being of the people who live, work, and play in our neighborhood. In addition, we recognize and support nonprofit organizations who contribute to the vitality and betterment of our community. We support these nonprofits through volunteerism, fundraising, and by helping to build awareness for their causes.
What Northwest Resource is doing in our community
Old Town Chinatown Neighborhood Association and Business Association
The Neighborhood and Business Associations in Old Town Chinatown are comprised of dedicated volunteers who work and live in the neighborhood. They all work together to support each other and improve the vitality of the neighborhood. Northwest Resource supports both Associations through employee volunteerism and sponsorships.
Credit Unions for Kids
Northwest Resource actively participates in fundraising for Credit Unions for Kids, which benefits Doernbecher Childrens' Hospital. We raise money through selling Entertainment Books, chocolate bars, holiday paper cutouts, and various employee events.
Transition Projects, Inc.
When the winter weather arrived, Northwest Resource helped some of our neighbors with a coat and blanket drive through Transition Projects. Transition Projects is the primary provider of shelter and services for homeless single adults in the Portland metropolitan area. Each year they serve more than 9,000 people; each day they shelter or house nearly 300 people. Your donations will help Transition Projects meet its mission: To serve people's basic needs as they transition from homelessness to housing.
March of Dimes
The mission of the March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.
During April, a team of Northwest Resource employees and family members “marched for babies,” the walk-a-thon fundraiser for March of Dimes. Through walk-a-thon pledges and various in-branch fundraising activities, we raised $2,818 for our local chapter of March of Dimes.
Banking on our Future
Three of our employees have volunteered to teach students in Portland Public Schools the basics of banking, checking and savings accounts, credit, and investing through the Banking On Our Future program. Banking On Our Future provides students ages 8-20 with financial knowledge needed to create wealth.
