Get the Credit Card that Invests in Your Community!

Choose Local and Unitus Community Credit Union partnered to create a credit card that benefits cardholders and our community.

Choose Local Visa Card Features & Benefits:

  • Membership in a local credit union (support local jobs)
  • Instant enrollment in the Choose Local Savings Program (support local merchants)
  • No annual fee
  • Competitive interest rates
  • No fee for balance transfer, cash advance, over limit, or inactivity
  • No teaser rates, gimmicks, or "gotchas"
  • No default clauses or penalty rates

Only 53% of students in Portland Public Schools graduate on time in four years. Link So, this card helps to change that by providing funding every time someone purchases with the Choose Local Visa Card. On EVERY swipe, 50% of the net interchange income will be donated by Unitus to the Portland - Multnomah County Education Cabinet Link , who will use the funds to support the Schools Uniting Neighborhoods & Youth SummerWorks programs.

Schools Uniting Neighborhoods provides a network of social and support services to youth, families, and community members, which leads to educational success and self-sufficiency. Link
Summer Youth Connect is a continuum of programs that include career and college visits, summer employment, academic support and service learning targeted at the youth who, according to academic indicators, are most at-risk of not graduating high school on time. It is a partnership of the City, County, Portland Schools Foundation, and Worksystems, Inc.. Link
