Brand Stories: Grants to Support Vaccine Distribution and Coordination

Banking with ESL has a cascading positive local impact. We believe in building a resilient, healthy, and equitable Greater Rochester where all residents are well-educated, have access to quality employment opportunities and live in connected, affordable neighborhoods. To accomplish this, we reinvest our profits in nonprofits and organizations that provide critical services to the Greater Rochester community.

We are happy to share one such story of how the ESL Community Impact team worked with Common Ground Health and United Way of Greater Rochester and the Finger Lakes on the local vaccine coordination and distribution efforts.

These efforts included an emergency $100,000 provided by ESL for incentives to ensure equitable vaccine distribution. In neighborhoods where these incentives were offered, vaccine dosage increased between 60% to 240%.

In total, ESL provided more than $500,000 to support these vaccine efforts, in addition to the $2.5 million ESL donated to Community Crisis Fund throughout the pandemic to support human service needs throughout Greater Rochester.
