Commitment to Our Communities

We believe that as a Member-Owned Financial Cooperative our mission is to support those we serve to become self-sufficient and to prosper, and to make the communities we live in stronger. North Coast is a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) which means we use our collective resources to support those we serve, including community members with limited access to safe and secure financial services.  

North Coast Cares Fund

North Coast Cares Fund

Each year on their work anniversary, North Coast employees are given an opportunity to donate $250 of North Coast Cares Funds to the local non-profit of their choice

Community Development 

Thomas Boucher is our Community Development Officer. In his role, Thomas looks for opportunities to make our communities stronger by supporting organizations that encourage financial self sufficiency.     

Champions Of Diversity

We proudly support Champions of Diversity, a scholarship program that recognizes young multicultural leaders in Skagit, Island, and San Juan counties. 


We support our local Firefighters who raise money each year to purchase new coats for local kids in need. We raise money for Operation Warm through our Report Card Rewards program.
