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 Cares Fund

Each year on their work anniversary, employees at North Coast are given an opportunity to donate $250 of North Coast Cares Funds to the local non-profit of their choice.   Our employees have supported nearly 100 local non profit organizations.

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.     

Our Foodie Fundraiser 

Take a Bite for Skagit

This is our annual foodie fundraiser that invites the community to dine at participating local restaurants.  Local restaurants in turn make a donation to bring locally grown produce to local food banks.  We are proud to partner with our event co-host Yummy Alert. 

Operation
Warm

We support our local Firefighters who raise money each year to purchase new coats for local kids.  We raise money for Operation Warm in two ways:

  • During our Member Appreciation BBQs
  • Through our Report Card Rewards program  

CDFI
Institution

As a Community Development Financial Institution we use our collective resources to support those we serve to become self-sufficient and to prosper including those in our community with limited access to safe and secure financial services.

Champions
of Diversity

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

Citizenship & DACA Loans

We offer low interest loans to cover the fees associated with Citizenship and DACA applications. 

Commitment to Sustainability

North Coast works to stay green by recycling all of our paper, lightbulbs, cardboard, toner cartridges and anything else that we can find.  Our members care about sustainability too, so each branch has bins to recycle batteries and lightbulbs.
