First Source has a longstanding commitment to education – from our original founding to be exact. Staying true to our roots as the Utica Teachers Federal Credit Union, it is important to us to invest in the health of our community and that includes eduction. Education is the foundation of what makes a community thrive. This is why we have longstanding partnerships with our local colleges, helping to meet their goals. This includes funding the Trading Room at Utica College and a Nursing Classroom at MVCC, development and expansion at SUNYIT and a planned business classrooms upgrade at HCCC. All are important facility upgrades for students enrolled in higher education. If we can help to get them the training and experience they need and keep them in our area after graduation, we’re all about that cause.
