Why volunteer groups?

Oikocredit Support Associations are collectives of volunteers whose members are engaged in promoting Oikocredit’s mission. Volunteer associations are part of a long-standing tradition in Oikocredit’s work. In addition to being active volunteers for Oikocredit, Support Associations are members of the Oikocredit International cooperative.

Oikocredit has two Support Associations based in the US – the Western Pennsylvania Support Association and the Oikocredit Northwest Support Association based in Seattle. Click on the regions to learn more about how you can get involved in your local Support Association.


Annual Meeting 2013 was a success!


The Western PA Support Association had a great general annual meeting on November 24, 2013. It was a great success with a total of about 25 participants, hosting a combination of current and previous board members, investors, members, and new attendees. Sharlene Brown, Oikocredit USA National Director gave a perfect presentation on the work of Oikocredit around the world. She explained how the organization has been growing both in the U.S. and internationally over the past year. Then Charlotte, Board President, Jack, Board Treasurer, and Rashawna, the current intern, gave an update on the budget, events, and strategic plans made by the board in 2013. In the closing, ambitious plans for 2014 were shared and the announcement of new board members was enthusiastically presented. Thank you WPSA members and investors for your continual support in Oikoccredit in the Support Association!
