Your credit union is making a difference.

Advantis named a top philanthropist by the Portland Business Journal.

We are deeply honored to be recognized by the Portland Business Journal as one of Portland’s  top philanthropic organizations. This is the sixth consecutive year Advantis has been recognized for our philanthropic efforts.

Community is in our DNA.

Advantis Volunteers      You can take pride in knowing that banking with Advantis adds value to your community. The credit union model is built on the principle of “people helping people” - and that includes working to support and strengthen the communities we’re proud to call home.

A few ways we’re making a difference:

GROW: The Advantis Community Fund      Over the past five years, GROW: The Advantis Community Fund has supported 33 local community improvement projects totaling $250,000. These projects were chosen by you, our members and the local community. Projects have included creating community gardens for elementary students, refurbishing a home for foster children, and providing kitchen equipment to an organization that provides meals for adults with mental illness – just to name a few.
Sunshine Division      We have a long history supporting the Sunshine Division, our local emergency food bank.  Advantis holds an annual canned tuna drive to help replenish the organization’s emergency food for needy families, along with providing volunteers to pack and deliver holiday and summer food boxes.
Credit Unions for Kids      In partnership with CU for Kids, Advantis raises funds throughout the year to support Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. Our annual raffle, candy sales and Shop for Miracles Day have raised thousands of dollars to support Doernbecher’s life-saving services for seriously ill children.

And we work together in our communities. Our employees coordinate monthly events for Advantis employees to volunteer their time and talents to help local non-profits. Working together in our communities is a favorite activity because it demonstrates the credit union spirit of people helping people in a very personal way.
