Community Commitment

We’re Involved in the Communities we serve in a big way. We’re not just your branch, we’re a part of your roots!

Customers want the best of both worlds and they get it at Howard Bank. We want to build a bank that not only has an impact on the communities it serves, but leaves a legacy. Contributing to the community is something that we value, whether that is supporting a local business, sponsoring a community event or serving on a board. We are committed to the people and businesses of the communities we serve. And the only way we know to keep that commitment is to be almost obsessive in our approach to volunteerism and participation. It’s a job requirement of every one of our executives to serve on the board of a local non-profit agency.

Our staff, investors, and directors are intrinsically connected to our communities. Some have called us a soft touch. We prefer to think of it as putting our resources where they’re most going to make a difference. We have provided bank resources and monetary support to more than 100 organizations. The response in the communities we serve has been incredibly rewarding.
