Sandy Spring Bank

For more than 150 years, Sandy Spring Bank has been at the heart of its community. Founded by a group of local business and townspeople who saw a post-Civil War era need for a community bank, the bank set out to serve the interests of the people and to make the community a better place to live, work, run a business and raise a family. Sandy Spring Bank has evolved to an expansive network of community offices and financial centers throughout D.C., Maryland and Virginia, but its founding principles remain true.

As the largest, locally-headquartered community bank, we are committed to being a financial advocate and delivering personalized solutions for our clients at every stage of life.That’s why we offer a comprehensive set of sophisticated products and services, including broad range of commercial banking, retail banking, mortgage and trust products and services, as well as insurance and wealth management.
