Community Builders - It's a Volunteer Thing!

Community Builders - It's a Volunteer Thing!

Rogue Federal was founded on the desire to make our community a better place to live. The original group of teachers that started the credit union back in 1956 knew that together they were better. With an "anything is possible spirit" the credit union started in a pencil box, then grew into a living room, and ultimately took over the garage at the Johnston residence. Rogue Federal came into being and grew with the selfless contributions of a few dedicated individuals that sacrificed their personal time, talents, and treasures to ensure Southern Oregon had a reliable financial option. The following quote best exemplifies the dedication of the original and current volunteer Board at Rogue Federal, “Volunteers don't get paid, not because they're worthless, but because they're priceless.” ~ Sherry Anderson

I am fortunate to serve a volunteer Board of Directors that dedicate countless hours of their personal time to ensure that Rogue Federal is safe, sound, and dedicated to meeting the needs of our members. The greatest reward for them is when we recognize the community heroes that make Southern Oregon a better place to live. So, each year at our Annual Meeting, our celebration of the the credit union difference, we recognize the folks that are tirelessly dedicating themselves to make Southern Oregon a better place to live.

With almost 50 nominations, it was difficult to narrow our choice to the 10 finalists. Reading through their stories, you’ll see that these folks exemplify all that is right with Southern Oregon. From working with youth, serving those with special needs, or helping seniors, our finalists demonstrate that there is considerable need in our community, and people like you and I can make a difference. The voting ends on March 24th and the winners will be recognized at our Annual Meeting on Tuesday, March 27th. Please come join the celebration of the credit union difference and the amazing things that folks are doing to make Southern Oregon a better place to live!
