Tompkins Earns Small Business Award

SBA Luncheon-1The holidays are a festive time and here at Tompkins, we have much to celebrate! For the past 150 years, we’ve been making a meaningful difference in the communities where we operate. That ongoing commitment is being recognized with a prestigious national award for commercial lending to small businesses in Western New York.

Tompkins is receiving a Silver award from the U.S. Small Business Administration’s office for approving over $5 million in small business loans from October 1, 2018 through September 30, 2019, supporting 345 jobs in the local community.

SBA District Director Frank Sciortino says that this level of activity is a clear indication of Tompkins’ commitment to our local small business community.  SBA relies on its lending partners to provide much needed capital to small businesses.

As we wrap up our yearlong celebration marking 150 amazing years of supporting our local communities, we also have many reasons to be thankful. Among them is having wonderful partners like the SBA. Together, we are building a bright future for our region and that is truly something to celebrate!
