Community Impact

We have a long history of working to improve and enrich the lives of those in our community. The lifelong work of our founder, Fred Rosenbaum, served as a thank you to the United States, which took him in as a refugee.

Today, we continue to live Fred’s legacy through our support of Camp Rosenbaum, named in Fred’s honor by the late Oregon Governor Victor Atiyeh, which has impacted tens of thousands of children.

Camp Rosenbaum was created in 1971 by Fred Rosenbaum as a week-long youth citizenship camp. Today, the camp provides life-enhancing opportunities for low-income young people through mentoring, camp, and athletic programs.

Fred instilled his dedication to public service in his son, Mark, our President and CEO. In addition to his philanthropic work, Fred served in the Oregon National Guard, earning the rank of Brigadier General. Mark has built a culture of community service at Rosenbaum Financial, which includes work across many non-profit organizations.

Our team members serve on a number of boards and committees in support of causes that are meaningful for our community. A representative list of current and past causes that are dear to us include:

  • Camp Rosenbaum
  • Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
  • Hillsboro Medical Center (formerly Tuality Community Hospital)
  • Jewish Federation of Greater Portland
  • Multnomah County Commission on Children and Families
  • Ninety-Nine Girlfriends
  • Oregon and SW Washington Chapter of ALS Association
  • Oregon Archeology Association
  • Phil-Am Leo’s Club
  • Prosper Portland (formerly the Portland Development Commission)
  • Rose City Rollers
  • The Pixie Project
  • The Portland State University Foundation
