The first issue of the Newton Federal Community Bulletin is here. This newsletter provides an opportunity to reflect on our events, promotions, and relationships with local businesses. In each issue, our president Greg Proffitt will share his own insights into how we serve the community and our customers.
A Division of Newton Federal
LeapFrog Mortgage, a division of Newton Federal, is an online mortgage lender committed to helping homeowners find the pad of their dreams. We’ve expanded our footprint to serve communities around the country.

Our team at LeapFrog Mortgage is dedicated to helping homebuyers along their financial journey, regardless of what stage they’re in. Whether you’re looking to purchase your first home, refinance your current home, move into a larger home more suitable for your growing family, or downsize to something more manageable now that your children have moved out, we can provide guidance and resources to help you through the homebuying journey. 
Meet Greg Proffitt

Town Square Olive Oil
Town Square Olive Oil recently celebrated 7 years in business this past May. In celebration of them and the success of the many small businesses that make Covington their home, our President, Greg Proffitt, wants to share the stories of local business owners within our Newton Federal community.

Town Square Olive Oil opened its doors on the Covington Square back in 2014 and offers a unique selection of gourmet products, including 65 flavors of balsamic vinegar and olive oil inspired by countries all over the world, custom charcuterie boards, spices, and plenty of other delicious offerings.
You Could Win a $500 Gift Card
Between July 1 - August 31 you can be entered for your chance to win a $500 gift card just in time for back-to-school shopping. All you have to do is use your Newton Federal debit card. The debit card holder with the most posted and settled transactions over $5 will win.

If we reach our transaction goal, our team will donate $500 to the Covington Salvation Army.
Raising Your Credit Score

Credit scores are a very important part of financial health. A solid score can unlock many savings & earning opportunities, such as loans and credit cards with the most favorable terms. Mistakes can happen and many often find themselves in the stronghold of poor credit.

Here are a few things you can do to help raise your credit:

  • Pay on time. Punctuality is KEY.
  • Always pay at least the minimum required payment.
  • Keep your balances as low as possible.
