We’re In The Community
PCFCU Community Involvement
We contribute time, effort and funds where we think it will do the most good. So far this year, we’ve contributed to the following organizations and or events either financially or with our valued time:
MIX 94.5 Mental Latte
Pacific Cascade is currently sponsoring the beloved Mix 94.5 morning Mental Latte. Listeners call in to answer the brain twisting questions presented by Liz and Reilly. The daily winner wins some cash to be spent (hopefully) at a local business. A little fun mixed with some good for our community equals win-win!
Children’s Miracle Network’s Lunch at Tiffany’s
Another annual event Pacific Cascade co-sponsors with several other credit unions. An event that raises thousands of dollars to boost our local pediatric units.
Junior Achievement of Lane County Sponsor
PCFCU has sponsored the JA Bowl-a-thon for years. A fundraising event to support teaching financial literacy within the school system. Grade K through 12. Another event that never grows old and does so much good for our community.
MIX 94.5 WALK IT OFF!
Pacific Cascade Federal Credit Union has been the Kids Club Sponsor for several years. Kids received a t-shirt for coming out and each week received a special fun gift! As with many a good thing, it has come to an end. But it was certainly a fun event to sponsor.
United Way of Lane County
PCFCU Corporate and staff contributions. We challenge ourselves to beat the prior year’s numbers. This keeps our contributions increasing!

United Way of Lane County Day of Caring
An annual event in our great community. We’ve constructed buildings (little buildings), painted rooms, power washed and power washed some more, painted stripes in a parking lot, cleaned up landscaping, cleaned up rooms, painted rooms, built a sand box. We’ve come close to having done it all. Will, not quite, but a lot of different projects for many different local agencies, including United Way’s own landscaping. It’s all fun.
We built two outdoor playhouses for the Pearl Buck Children’s Center! (my personal favorite)
