Embold Credit Union deepens relationship with Linfield University (Photo) - 03/27/24

Milwaukie, Ore. (March 27, 2024) – Embold Credit Union and Linfield University have partnered to bring financial literacy classes, a mobile branch, an ATM, and other programming to the McMinnville campus. 

The partnership began in 2022, when Embold was a key sponsor of NW Media Fest and began offering financial literacy classes to students in Linfield’s award-winning First Scholars program.   

“We are thrilled,” said Joseph Hunter, Linfield’s vice president for advancement. “Embold is a fantastic partner with a decades-long track record of giving back to the community. This is a tremendous opportunity for our first-generation students — financial literacy is absolutely crucial. Embold will give our students tools that will serve them throughout their lives.”   

For their part, Embold leadership said it’s a natural partnership. The first Embold McMinnville branch opened in June of 2023. 

“As new members of the McMinnville community, Embold sought partners who had similar missions,” said Hilary Kissell, Embold’s Director of Marketing and Community Development. “Our credit union improves lives and the connection with Linfield was a natural and easy fit—we’re both here to advance education, increase financial stability, provide resources to underserved communities and so much more. We are truly honored to help Linfield students, parents, faculty and staff and alumni bank boldly and achieve their dreams.” 

The mobile branch will be on campus Wednesdays throughout the spring semester in the Event Zone at the southern end of the Pioneer Way parking lot, across the street from Dillin Hall.
