The Vancouver, Wash.-based credit union partnered with 141 local nonprofits to inject nearly $400,000 into vital causes. A portion of that money was raised by iQ staff and members through the iQ for Kids foundation, which supports local organizations dedicated to enriching the lives of young children. Beyond financial contributions, the iQ crew volunteered 1,035 hours of their time, highlighting the credit union’s culture of showing up and giving back.  

Education and financial literacy were at the forefront of iQ's community impact efforts.  

  • The credit union reached over 2,600 students through 57 presentations and events, including financial reality fairs and interactive sessions at local schools and farmer’s markets.  
  • iQ awarded $10,000 in grants to 28 educators in 11 school districts through the Read with Me program. 
  • iQ provided $22,000 in scholarship funds to five students to support their education in college or a trade school. 

iQ also took steps to combat hunger, housing insecurity and health challenges in efforts to address fundamental needs. Strategic partnerships with organizations such as OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, Cascade AIDS Project, SHARE and the Clark County Food Bank enabled iQ to extend its impact to critical areas of need within the community.
