Commit to Financial Literacy!
By Denise Stokes | Senior Vice President, Director of Retail Banking
April is National Financial Literacy Month, which is recognized in an effort to encourage folks to learn more about financial principles and practices. As a community bank with deep local roots, Sandy Spring Bank recognizes that financial competency is not only an essential life skill, but it is also important to building strong communities. We’re committed to adding value to our communities by supporting financial literacy education, not just in April, but all year-long.
Sandy Spring Bank has been participating in financial literacy efforts for decades, teaching children and adults the importance of establishing and maintaining healthy financial habits. Our employees maximize financial education opportunities by leading seminars, visiting classrooms and partnering with financial literacy organizations. This year marks the fifth consecutive school year we have partnered with EverFi , a free, web-based financial literacy program. Through our partnership with EverFi we have reached more than 13,250 high school students in seven counties across the region. Our employees also support Junior Achievement and The Academy of Finance to inspire, educate and financially prepare our future leaders.
Join us this month as we celebrate our employees, teachers, and financial education partners who bring financial literacy to life across our footprint. Make sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn to see how we are committed to enhancing the lives of the communities we serve.
