PORTLAND, Ore. — Can money make you sick? Mike Fletcher of Point West Credit Union here makes a direct connection between health and financial well-being. He’s delivered a presentation titled “Can Money Make You Sick?” which covers the basics of financial education and its effect on stress many times, including at a Health and Wellness Fair at Portland Community College last year. Back then, Fletcher, VP of Marketing & Business Development, said he hoped the program might be expanded.

That hope is now a reality, along with a growing emphasis on Point West’s outreach to the Hispanic Community. Within three years it has opened a new branch and expanded staff from 35 to 50 and offered new products, all directed at growing this $106 million, near 13,000-member CU as it celebrates its 75th year. To kick things off, it’s running a 7% CD offer that’s already brought in $1.5 million in new money. The 5-month CD is available to members who have checking accounts and direct deposit and 74 members opened promotional CDs on the first day of the promotion.
