Junior Achievement of Oregon
We participated as a speaker in a 6-week program as part of the Junior Skills class to educate students on financial topics.
Portland State University Scholarship
Many of our advisors at FIT are PSU alumni so we feel it is only suitable to help other students pursuing financial industry careers achieve their dreams. We offer an annual $5000 scholarship to students majoring in Accounting or Finance, at both the Bachelors and Masters degree level, with a preference to those with a military background.
Backpacks for Homeless Youth
Homelessness is an issue that affects far too many people, many of whom are youth, helpless to improving their situations. We provided 60 backpacks to youth in our community filled with necessities such as personal hygiene products, hats, gloves, snacks, etc.
Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity builds and restores homes for communities to help homeowners achieve stability and independence for a better life. We think this is an important cause and are grateful to have the opportunity to help build some of these homes.
Oregon Food Bank
The Oregon Food Bank provides meals for people in our community struggling with food insecurity. We believe no one should have to wonder when they will eat next and offer our time and resources to help mitigate this issue. We have volunteered to prepare and package meals for families in addition to donating to the Food Bank.
Ronald McDonald House
The Ronald McDonald House provides a home away from home for families of seriously injured or ill children who had to travel for care. Some of these families have to stay for extended periods and we want to help make their stay a little bit easier. A few times a year the FIT team goes to the Ronald McDonald House to make a home cooked meal for the families. This is a heart-warming experience for our team and we truly cherish the opportunity to help.
We feel it is important to keep our environment clean for future generations. Every quarter the FIT team sets out to clean up the road in front of Southridge Highschool. The work may be dirty, but we still have a blast cleaning together.
We’d love to volunteer our time to many different organizations but unfortunately don’t have the capacity to do so. Our solution is to donate other resources to these causes. These are some of the organizations we’ve donated to:
- Parkinson’s Research
- Oregon Public Broadcasting (OPB)
- Leach Botanical Garden
- American Cancer Society
- Oregon Humane Society
- Portland Animal Welfare Team (PAW)
- Donate Life Northwest
- Friends of Columbia Gorge
- And Many More…
