What makes Clackamas different from a bank? Our structure, values, and impact. We put people before profits. We aren't owned by stockholders or governed by a paid board of directors. We're a financial cooperative, owned by members, run by a board of volunteers who aren't in it to make money - they're in it to make a difference. At Clackamas, we work every day to deliver on that: offering products and services tailored to your needs, volunteering in the communities we serve, making donations, sponsoring events, and being a good neighbor. At Clackamas, we've got your back.
