Is It Possible To Be Proud Of A Bank?
We think so. Albina Community Bank works to create hope and financial opportunity by building lasting banking relationships with those who care the most about our communities. It's our mission. And part of that includes our support of community development by providing products and services and banking solutions that are directed towards improving the social or economic conditions of underserved peoples or residents of distressed communities.

Our CDFI Certification
Albina is one of approximately 120 commercial banks across the United States certified by the U.S. Department of the Treasury as a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI). As a CDFI, we have a primary mission of promoting community development and work in market niches that are often underserved by other financial institutions and to provide financial and educational services in our local community.
Over the last 20+ years, Albina has been awarded nearly $5.9 Million in funding from the CDFI Fund in recognition of the work we are doing to support community development in our local neighborhoods. We continue that positive impact by leveraging these awards back into distressed communities in Portland. To learn more about CDFIs, visit www.cdfifund.gov/cdfi
