Raising Funds for Wildfire Relief

In September 2020, the Almeda and Obenchain Fires destroyed over 2,800 structures in Southern Oregon, displacing an estimated 3,000 residents. To aid recovery efforts, the Rogue Credit Union Foundation established a Wildfire Relief Fund to gather support. The community response was unbelievable. With the credit union matching up to $100,000 in donations, Rogue raised over $1 million in just two weeks. The credit union quickly stood up a grant program to distribute the funds to 24 local non-profits helping those in need. 

     

The Pear Blossom Festival has been Rogue Valley's cornerstone spring celebration for nearly 70 years. Since its beginnings as a children's parade in 1954, it's grown to include over 150 floats, fun activities for kids and adults alike, and scholarship opportunities. Celebration of the community and love for the Rogue Valley sit at the heart of the festival. 

Rogue Credit Union has proudly supported the Pear Blossom Festival as the Title Sponsor for over ten years, helping the annual event bring family fun each spring. 

   

Medford Movies in the Park

In 2010, Rogue Credit Union partnered with the City of Medford to support Movies in the Park, bringing family-friendly entertainment to the community every summer. Rogue team members volunteer their time to serve food, lead activities for kids, mingle with the community, and have a great time!

Rogue and the City of Medford have provided over 100 movies over the past 11 years for families across the Rogue Valley to enjoy.

     

Supporting Holiday Celebrations

Since 1984, the Klamath Snowflake Festival has ushered in the Christmas season with two weeks of events filled with holiday spirit. Highlighted by the Snowflake Parade, there's something for everyone at this family-friendly winter celebration. 

Rogue was delighted to welcome Santa into the South Klamath Falls branch during the festival to visit with our Rogue Rangers and enjoy hot coca.
