Giving Back to Our Communities

Central Willamette is committed to enrich our community through our volunteer efforts. We actively participate and support civic organizations and events and are pleased to report that our employees contributed over 2,000 hours of volunteer service last year! Each employee is encouraged to find their passion and follow it. Credit Union employees give their own time to support the community that they live and work in.

Fundraising Walks:

Central Willamette employees participate in the annual Soroptimist Breast Cancer Walk for the Cause, iRun for Kids, Runaway Santa and more!

Chamber of Commerce:

Employees participate with local area Chambers of Commerce in our communities serving in many capacities, including Greeters, Ambassadors, and Marketing Committee.

Credit Unions for Kids:

Funds are raised by selling See's Candies to staff, members and friends of the Credit Union. The proceeds of this fundraiser benefit Doernbecher Children's Hospital and PeaceHealth Sacred Heart Medical Center.

Other Involvement:

As well as special events, Credit Union employees are involved in service organizations such as Boys & Girls Clubs, SafeHaven Humane Society, Albany Rotary and Greater Albany Rotary Clubs, Soroptimist, Habitat for Humanity, Samaritan Albany General Hospital Auxiliary, Greater Albany Public Schools, Linn Benton Community College, Altrusa, and more. Central Willamette's employees volunteer their time to serve on Board of Directors, various task forces and key committees.

The Difference

Central Willamette is proud to make a difference in the lives and well-being of our members and members of our communities by participating in all of these projects and programs. For Central Willamette employees the following quote is one we all live by:

"Never Doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world . . . Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has!"
