Sharing Some Thanks

Reeling from sticker price shock and escalating financing terms, I was ready to throw in the towel. Then, when you answered the phone at PATF, the whole process turned around. Because of PATF's help with financing our adapted vehicle, Patti has empowerment she has not known in a decade. PATF is a lucky charm! Thank you!
- Patti and Patrick

As we enter this season of gratitude, we are reading through some of the thank you notes we've received over the last year and also reflecting on the things we are thankful for ourselves. We are thrilled to be able to offer help through information and assistance, and of course through our loan programs, and we are also grateful that we have the support that allows us to make a difference in people's lives across Pennsylvania.

There is a community behind this work, and this Thanksgiving we're saying a little thank you to each and every one of you that makes it all possible.

Thank you.

9 Tips to Get You (and Your Wallet) Through the Holidays

It's the most wonderful time of the year! That is, until January rolls around and many of us are looking at our wallets and credit card statements wondering what happened...

Here are some tips to help you get organized and avoid that last-minute rushing around that is stressful on your body and your bank account.
  1. Map it out. Look at your  money map (budget) and decide realistically how much you would like to spend and on what. It can be helpful to make a list of all of the people you plan to buy gifts for, all of the decorations you plan to purchase, and any other projected spending this season. This free  Holiday Budget Calculator will help you estimate your spending over the next month and a half.
