Developing, Cultivating and Growing our Employees

August 27th, 2015

2013 Jory prof picCultivating our employees is an integral part of what First Source stands for. We’re proud to have had the ability to send 19 employees through the Leadership Mohawk Valley (LMV) program over the last 19 years. All have benefited from the program, as has our organization as a whole.

LMVIf you’ve not been through the program, you may not know the positive impact it has on our community. LMV is a 10-month community leadership and professional development program that strengthens individuals for personal, organizational and community leadership.

If you want to know more about LMV and see why First Source values the program, this year you can follow us along. Our Loan and Deposit Operations Manager, Brenda Rogowski, will be sharing her LMV experience through our blog, once a month for 10 months. We look forward to sharing Brenda’s journey, and hope you’ll join us by reading her posts.

Supporting Your Lifestyle

July 2nd, 2015

Who wouldn’t want to Live the Summer Dream?

June 18th, 2015

BeachFunWe all deserve some special treatment after the brutal winter we had to endure! Maybe it had you wishing you could make just a little more of this summer. Like a special trip to the ocean, or to a tropical resort. Maybe a jet ski, four-wheeler, or RV. If you’re thinking bigger, you might have decided that life is too short to wait, and it’s finally time to buy that family camp in the Adirondacks. We know you have your own idea of what will make this summer special, and we want to support you.

Turns out, we have a number of ways to help: custom loans for a wide variety of dreams. From Personal Loans to Recreational Loans, Mortgages and more, we can tailor a solution to your needs. The possibilities await!

Has Life Stuck you With a Lemon?

May 12th, 2015

Financial_troubleDespite our best plans, life has a way of occasionally handing us lemons (or, in the case of your old auto, just the one lemon). And an unexpected hit to our finances can make it hard to get credit, and a loan for a new (or new used) vehicle. We believe you deserve better treatment.

How can we help? By making auto loans easier. Instead of rejecting someone for a loan based only on their credit score, we listen to the whole story. We want to see you as a person, not just a number.

If you’re struggling, we’ll help you get your finances back on track, by talking about and working through your individual financial situation and needs. Then you’re well on your way to getting the vehicle you dream of—the one you deserve. Start Livin’ the Dream by making your appointment to speak to a Member Service Representative now.

Membership and credit requirements apply. Supporting dreamers everywhere, because everyone deserves a second chance. Federally insured by the NCUA.

Riding for a Great Cause

May 11th, 2015

2014FSRideTeamPhoto_sWe are honored to be the Corporate Luminary Sponsor of the 2015 Ride for Missing Children-CNY. This is our 6th year as Luminary Sponsor, as this is a noble cause we’re very proud to support. The Ride for Missing Children is the biggest annual fundraiser for the National Center For Missing & Exploited Children – Mohawk Valley Office.

At the Mohawk Valley office, missing children alerts are received, and printed posters of missing children are sent out to specific geographic areas in the United States, Canada and Mexico, aiding the effort to recover missing children. Throughout the year, they conduct educational programs at schools and other educational facilities across New York State, as a way to prevent children from going missing. They also offer all-important hope and healing to families of missing children.

This year, 6 Volunteers and 10 Riders are representing First Source in the Ride. Above and beyond our Luminary sponsorship, our Corporate Riders raise additional funds on their own to support the Center.

Our corporate sponsorship, along with all corporate sponsorships for the Ride, are an invaluable source of underwriting for the Ride. They allow all Rider fundraising to directly benefit the Center’s mission of education and poster distribution.

We are honored to be a true partner of The Ride For Missing Children, helping to “Make our children safer…One child at a time.”

The Ride will be passing our New Hartford branch around 12:25 p.m. Friday, and we invite you to join us to cheer them on!
