SELCO in the Community
We’re making a difference together.
You’re invested in your community—and we’re invested in you. In fact, it’s our mission to give you a social and financial boost in life. So when we dedicate our time and money to improving the standard of living in the communities we serve, we’re doing it all for you.
In 2015, SELCO Community Credit Union and its employees donated nearly $250,000 and devoted hundreds of hours to help 150 community organizations throughout Oregon. Most of our efforts revolved around youths and educators, who stand to make a real impact on the future of our community. With $60,000 in college scholarships and classroom mini-grants alone, we were able to give a lot of students a better chance for success.
Here’s how we’re giving back this year:
Sponsorships & Donations
Each year we pinpoint the most critical need in our community and pour our efforts into making the biggest impact we can. Through donations and employee fundraising efforts, we spent 2015 supporting organizations that make children’s lives safer, healthier, and more successful.
Young leaders are the seeds of our future prosperity. Our membership base is filled with bright scholastic achievers who are already making a difference in their communities. Each spring, we help as many students as we can to continue their education with $1,500 scholarships to a two- or four-year college or university.
When teachers have the resources they need, magic happens—the kind of magic that changes lives. Our $500 mini-grants to K-12 educators help fund innovative classroom projects that inspire students to learn. Since 1993, we’ve helped offset school budget cuts by giving more than $20,000 to local classrooms each fall.
