TLC is proud to partner with organizations, projects, and events in each of our communities. We believe that by doing good throughout our membership areas, we can help shape a more positive future for our communities and our members. We focus on K-12 education, higher education through our local community colleges, addressing the unique needs and challenges of low-income families, and fostering a more vibrant and financially sustainable future for residents throughout our membership area.
Communities First Program
Because we prioritize support for education and healthcare related services, we developed the Communities First Program in 2018. Through this program, we provide multi-year sponsorships for select community colleges and hospitals within the seven WA and OR counties we serve. To date, we have donated $87,000 to Communities First recipients, including four college foundations and eight hospital foundations. With the renewal of the program from 2021 to 2023, we pledge to distribute another $87,000 to these community-centered foundations.
Our commitment to giving back is supplemented by a strong spirit of volunteerism among our staff. In fact, our employees have volunteered over 6,700 hours at dozens of community events and fundraisers since 2016. From volunteering time at community events to holding internal staff fundraisers for local charities, our Fibre Family employees embody the credit union credo of people helping people year round, even off the clock.
Donations and Sponsorships
As a not-for-profit, member-owned cooperative, we are charged with investing our members' resources in the most effective ways possible. This has led us to develop focus areas and create guidelines for our donations and sponsorships.
