When we say ESL members belong to something bigger, we mean something bigger than a transaction, bigger than banking. You’re planting the seeds for a better financial future: for you, your family, your business, and our community. You are part of a movement committed to the progress and prosperity of our region. ESL has grown into the financial institution we are today because of our members’ trust and loyalty in us for more than 100 years. The ESL in the Community Report demonstrates the positive impact of that trust and loyalty, and the various ways our work at ESL impacts the Greater Rochester community. Within this annual report, you will find:

  • Corporate facts and figures
  • Employee diversity data
  • ESL Equity Plan
  • Financial Wellness
  • Owners’ Dividend
  • Business, Mortgage, and Personal lending
  • Wealth Management
  • Sponsorship and scholarship highlights
  • Community Impact reinvestments in local nonprofits
  • Activities planned for the new year
