About Us

Founded in 1869, Tompkins Bank of Castile is a full-service, locally managed community bank with 16 branches serving Genesee, Wyoming, Livingston, Orleans and Monroe Counties in Western New York.

HONORING A TRADITION OF LONG-TERM VALUE AND TRUST

Today, we continue to honor the mission we began more than 140 years ago - to provide long-term value and earn the trust of the clients and community we serve.   Tompkins Bank of Castile did not participate in subprime lending nor in any subprime-related investments.  We did not take funds from the government’s TARP program and we remain strong and well capitalized.

ACTIVELY LENDING TO OUR COMMUNITY’S FAMILIES AND BUSINESSES

Despite what you may have read about the banking industry curtailing lending during the current recession, Tompkins Bank of Castile continues to be active in making home mortgage and business loans.  As a community bank, we reinvest the deposits we hold as loans to local businesses and families, helping the economy and employment in this area.  Our credit decisions are made locally, by experienced lenders who know our clients personally and the area’s economy first-hand.

SUPPORTING OUR COMMUNITY’S ORGANIZATIONS

Tompkins Bank of Castile is dedicated to enhancing the vitality of this community through the support of numerous local economic, arts, education, and health-related organizations. Additionally, our employees contribute countless hours of community service and fundraising activities for area organizations. 

RANKED AMONG THE NATION’S STRONGEST AND MOST STABLE BANKS 

Tompkins Bank of Castile was again recognized by Bauer Financial, an independent ratings firm, as among the nation's strongest banks. We remain on its 4-Star Recommended (Excellent) list in 2017. To make the list, banks are rated on their overall financial picture, performance, strength and stability. These "recommended" banks are said to be operating well above regulatory capital requirements.

BACKED BY THE STRENGTH AND CAPABILITIES OF TOMPKINS FINANCIAL

Tompkins Bank of Castile is also backed by the strength and capabilities of our parent company, Tompkins Financial Corporation, a $6 billion in assets holding company.
