Our Story

Group of business people in a conference room standing and talking. Our Story

Founded by a group of local business and townspeople who saw a post-Civil War era need for a community bank—they set out to serve the interests of its people and to make the community a better place to live, work, run a business and raise a family. We continue to do that today. Now with an expansive network of community offices and financial centers throughout D.C., Maryland, and Virginia, we have evolved to meet our clients’ changing needs, but our principles have remained steadfast and strong. We take pride in serving the college student getting his first checking account, the newly married couple planning for their first home, and the local business that’s just getting up and running. We value these relationships, and promise to be there every step of your journey, serving as your financial advocate and delivering the best possible solutions to meet your unique needs.

As one of the oldest and largest independent financial institutions in the area, we offer a comprehensive set of sophisticated products and services. We continue to be at the forefront of banking technology and provide state-of-the art money management and online banking services. But the difference is simple: We are there for you, at the right time. Right in your community.

We are Sandy Spring Bank and we would love the opportunity to serve your needs and, most importantly, earn your trust.
