About Point West

Banking Without Borders

For more than 80 years, we have striven to bring financial inclusion and empowerment to the Portland metro area. We're proud to be a not-for-profit, member owned financial institution working to lift up the underserved, including immigrants, communities of color, and small businesses.

Our History

Point West began its life in 1932 as Multco Employees Credit Union, serving as the member-owned financial cooperative for employees working for Multnomah County. As the credit union grew over the years, our membership evolved to reflect the amazing diversity of the Portland metro area, culminating in mergers with the NAACP Credit Union and Hacienda Community Credit Union.

Following the Great Recession, we refocused our mission, dedicating ourselves to community development. We received our Low Income Designation (LID) from the NCUA in 2013, and received our community charter (serving Multnomah, Clackamas, Washington and Yamhill counties) and our CDFI certification from the US Treasury in 2014. In 2016, we received our Juntos Avanzamos designation from the National Federation of Community Development Credit Unions for our service to and support of the Hispanic community.

Our mission here at Point West is to pursue financial empowerment for our members and member businesses by embracing our cooperative roots and providing exceptional service rooted in equity and inclusion. Together with our community partners, we believe the best is yet to come, and look forward to working with our members to bring real change and opportunity to all.
