How to Apply for the Albina Community Bank Credit Card

The Albina Community Bank Credit Card is a credit option that is distinctly focused on aiding non-profit organizations that utilize the services of the Albina Community Bank. Individuals living in the Portland, OR area who have philanthropic interests need to look no further than the Albina Community Bank Credit Card as a percentage of the cardholder’s yearly purchases are donated to the non-profit organization(s) of their choosing. As the Albina Community Bank Credit Card is a card that has vested interest in the specific Portland, OR community, the features that are often associated with national level credit cards are not wholly present with this credit option. As such, the application process is devoid of the simple online method most commonly featured in the application process of other cards. However, the application process is not overly complicated and we have outlined the required steps below.
