In addition to strong performance in all key financial categories, Rogue continued to be a committed community partner throughout 2022, giving back over $350,000 in sponsorships, donations and scholarships, and over $190,000 to local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

Rogue Credit Union also gave their time and took volunteer efforts to new heights with their Rogue “Community” Rally. During a 40-day sprint ending October 10, 535 Rogue team members volunteered 1,125 hours at organized “Community” Rally events across the regions they serve. Every branch and department across the organization participated, creating unique team-building opportunities across the credit union. Volunteer activities included park and beach clean-ups, grounds keeping, painting and repairs, and more for over 30 local non-profit organizations. Those organizations included CASA, various schools, ACCESS, United Way, Sleep in Heavenly Peace, Eagle Point Senior Community Center, Reaching Our Community Food Pantry, Port Orford Park Cleanup, the Drexel H. Foundation and many more.

In 2022, Rogue volunteered over 8,500 hours in their local communities. Rogue Credit Union’s President/CEO Matt Stephenson says, “Supporting our community has been a focus for us since our foundation, and we’re always looking for new ways to give back. This ‘Community’ Rally was an exciting opportunity for our entire team to unite together and make a big impact in just a few short weeks.”

2022 was also highlighted by Matt Stephenson becoming the new President/CEO on April 1, following the retirement of long-time CEO Gene Pelham. Pelham’s retirement brought to a close a remarkable career of 43 years in financial services and more than 18 years of service with Rogue Credit Union.

Rogue was also recognized with several awards in the fourth quarter including the Medford Mail Tribune’s Best Financial Institution 14 years on a row, the Curry Coastal Pilot Best Financial Services and Best Financial Institution, along with the Argus Observer Best Financial Institution of the Western Treasure Valley. Additionally, Rogue was presented with the Karen Doolen Award for service by the Jackson County Children’s Advocacy Center, acknowledging the credit union’s outstanding service and dedication over the years of volunteer efforts.

Rogue Credit Union has 27 locations across Southern Oregon, the Umpqua Valley, Klamath Basin, South Coast and the Treasure Valley.
