Community Business Partnerships

Promoting Career Development & Financial Wellness in Our Communities

Salal has been serving the financial needs of healthcare professionals for nearly 70 years. This dedication to caregivers is at the heart of our Community Business Partnership program.



Through our Community Business Partnerships, our goal is to enhance the lives, careers, and financial wellbeing of healthcare and biomedical professionals in the communities we serve. With a major share of our members working in the medical community, this industry and its mission are of special importance to us. It’s our goal to empower these professionals through direct support of career development opportunities, along with providing access to quality financial tools, services, and education.


Our approach to partnership is flexible and collaborative, with customized plans designed to augment and supplement the employee wellness and education programs of our partner organizations. This support often takes the form of funding for scholarships, grants, and continuing education opportunities, as well as free on-site financial education classes and special offers on many of the financial services we offer.


We have partnered with groups and institutions such as the King County Nurses Association, HealthPoint, and Northwest Kidney Centers, and we continue to look for opportunities to make a positive difference in the lives and careers of healthcare and biomedical professionals in our communities.

“King County Nurses Association is grateful for the partnership with Salal Credit Union because it allowed us to expand our opportunities in continuing nursing education, scholarships for nursing students, and community projects. These programs would not have taken place without the funds from Salal Credit Union and we really appreciate the assistance!”
—Sue Vermeulen, Executive Director, King County Nurses Association
