Community Investment

Mission Statement:  As a community bank, Howard Bank has a tradition and culture of supporting non-profit organizations in the markets we serve.  Voluntarism by employees is encouraged, and financial support has been generous.  With Howard Bank’s continued growth comes an increasing number of requests for contributions.  The Community Investment Committee reviews these requests and determines the best candidates for support.

Focus Areas:  The three areas of primary focus for Howard Bank’s philanthropy/sponsorships are:

  • Education – Especially programs that advance financial literacy.
  • Economic Development and community building initiatives.
  • Arts and Culture – A number of legacy programs Howard Bank has sponsored in the past as well as multi-year pledges.

Additional Consideration:  The Committee will also consider opportunities where:

  • The non-profit organization is a Howard Bank customer or there is a strong likelihood that a new banking relationship can be formed.
  • Organizations in which Howard Bank employees are involved as a member of the Board of Directors, as a volunteer or other engagement.
  • Where a favorable return on investment can be demonstrated.

If you feel that your organization/event is a candidate for support from Howard Bank, please fill in and submit the form below. We will make sure to contact you by the deadline date that you set in the form.
