Campus branches put real world finances to the test.
Students at area high schools have long excelled in algebra, history and foreign languages. Now thanks to an innovative partnership with iQ Credit Union, they can also master checking accounts, auto loans and more. Through our campus branch program, students at sixlocal high schools help run their own fully operational branch, giving them a true hands-on learning experience.

Doing a good deed for people in need.
Due to recent events, more people than ever from our area are going hungry. That’s why we’re proud to sponsor The Blue’s Festival, the main fundraiser for the Oregon Food Bank. Last year, the festival enjoyed a record-breaking number of people, all making cash or canned good donations for families in our area needing help. More than 530,000 food boxes were distributed to agencies in Oregon and Clark County.

Scholarships help send local kids to college.
College comes with big books, big lecture halls and big homework. These days, it also comes with a big price tag. iQ Credit Union is happy to help local students there, too. We now offer several scholarships available for area high school, college and community college students.
One additional iQ Credit Union scholarship is available directly through the Clark College Foundation. Please contact the foundation at 360-992-2301 for more information on this unique scholarship available to the Clark College student body.

"Read With Me™" brings the joy of reading home.
What do you get when you cross a curious 8 year old with a wacky story by Dr. Seuss? A good reader! Through our "Read With Me™" program, local elementary school students receive free books they can call their own. Since the program's inception in 1997, more than 60,000 books have been distributed to children throughout Southwest Washington - with over 3,000 books handed out last year alone.
