When we say ESL members belong to something bigger, we mean something bigger than simply a transaction, more than banking. They’re planting the seeds for a better financial future: for themselves, their families, their business, and our community. They are part of a movement committed to the advancement and prosperity of our region. Because we believe we’re all stakeholders in an even Greater Rochester. ESL has grown into the financial institution we are today because of our members’ trust and loyalty in us for more than 100 years. We created the ESL in the Community Report to demonstrate the positive impact of that trust and loyalty and to the various ways our work at ESL impacts the Greater Rochester community.
