Community Impact

First, a little history: Fred Rosenbaum founded Rosenbaum Financial in 1956, with the goal of making a lasting impact on the lives of his clients. His life-long work in the industry and community served as a thank you to the United States that took him in as a refugee. While first getting his feet wet in finance via the insurance industry, Fred served as an Oregon National Guard Brigadier General, championing the promotion of women and minorities.

He chaired the Housing Authority of Portland (known today as Home Forward) and is credited with creating more than 6,000 housing units for low-income individuals. Fred’s concern for young people living in affordable housing drove him to establish a week-long youth citizenship camp in 1971. Camp Rosenbaum, named in Fred’s honor by the late Oregon Governor Victor Atiyeh, has impacted tens of thousands of children and continues its mission and work today. 

Fred’s son, Mark Rosenbaum, continues his father’s legacy of financial know-how and commitment to the community. Mark has served or serves on a number of boards, including as chair of Multnomah County Commission on Children, Families, and Community, the Portland Development Commission, Tuality Healthcare, Portland State University Foundation, and the Camp Rosenbaum Fund. 

Rosenbaum Financial is involved because we realize that bringing skills and time to community issues is the way to improve the future for the community that has given so much opportunity to us. We look forward to sharing our experiences and positive results with you!
