About Our Community Giving Program
We are a truly local, truly full-service, and truly independent community bank with a specific mission to invest in the individuals, the families, the businesses and the neighborhoods of Portland. We’re committed to supporting organizations whose primary mission is to benefit low-and moderate-income populations in the communities we serve. Albina’s Community Giving Program focuses primarily on those organizations and activities that deliver financial education programs and community development initiatives throughout our service area.
Albina supports financial education programs for children, adults, businesses, and non-profit organizations. We are committed to doing what we can to make sure everyone has access to education about the basics of banking, building and maintaining good credit, building small businesses and achieving home ownership.
Our mission calls for economic development within the communities we serve. Our Community Giving Program provides us the opportunity to assist a number of worthy organizations through our support of community and cultural events that are of special importance to the underserved neighborhoods of the greater Portland area.
We will consider providing support to applicants that are tax-exempt organizations located in the greater Portland metro area, including Vancouver, Washington. Applicants generally must be designated as tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, and have been determined not to be a “private foundation” under Section 509(a) of the code.
Funding preference will be given to organizations who are customers of Albina Community Bank.
Customers who are currently receiving donations through Albina’s LOOP VISATM Credit Card program are not eligible to receive Community Giving funding at the same time.
