Two credit unions announced last Thursday that they made donations with the specific goal of combatting climate change.

The $9 billion OnPoint Community Credit Union in Portland, Ore., gave $226,750 to The Nature Conservancy in Oregon (TNC), a 60-year-old organization focused on land and water conservation. The donation will support critical TNC projects including increasing the pace and scale of forest restoration, employing adaptation strategies to ensure vibrant and resilient coastal communities and sustainable fisheries, and protecting existing soil and underground carbon in Eastern Oregon, according to OnPoint Community.
