When a small group of Pittsford Central School District employees got together and decided they wanted higher earnings on their savings and a source of affordable loans, the Pittsford Federal Credit Union was born. In 1968, these founders pooled their funds and launched the member-owned, not-for-profit financial cooperative.
For the first few years, the Credit Union was staffed entirely by volunteers. Funds were stored inside a shoebox in a classroom desk drawer, and all transactions were recorded by hand. Within just five years, membership grew to over one thousand members and assets topped $1 million.
By 1998, after thirty years in business, the Credit Union had again outgrown its space. A second office was built in the town of Mendon, providing convenient branch banking for members. The second location would also house centralized computer hardware and systems and a new call center to handle ever-increasing call volumes.
In July 2006, a community charter expansion was approved, and membership was extended to individuals who live or work in the towns of Brighton, East Rochester, Perinton, Pittsford, Mendon, Victor, East Bloomfield, West Bloomfield, Lima, Avon, Rush or Henrietta. By the close of 2007, the Credit Union employed fifty-five people and assets exceeded $233 million.
From shoebox savings to state-of-the-art technology, the Credit Union has come a long way. Growth and change will continue in the twenty-first century, as the Credit Union takes advantage of new opportunities and new technologies to respond to the changing needs of its members. The primary objective, however, will always remain the same: provide superior products and outstanding personal service to members.
