A community we care about.

Commitment to Community
 

As one of the leading community banks in our region, EagleBank has long been an active contributor of time and resources in the Washington, DC region. We help create local jobs, reinvest local dollars back into the community, and provide a source for financial education. During our 25 years in the market, we have dedicated millions of dollars locally to affordable housing, small business access to capital, healthcare and education initiatives.

EagleBank’s mission statement affirms that we differentiate ourselves by our leadership role in “supporting and enhancing our community.” We take our role of corporate citizen seriously, whether it is branch managers teaching financial literacy to middle schoolers, a commercial banker presenting a cash flow how-to for small business owners, or employees working hand-in-hand with community partners for a variety of philanthropic causes.

Some of the biggest tools EagleBank uses to create and maintain strong relationships within our community are our lending programs. By financing projects throughout our footprint, we help transform streetscapes across the entire DC area, including under-served areas. It is a mission of EagleBank to foster inclusivity and support our local community and economy. Our dedication to supporting and investing in affordable housing options includes a number of investment vehicles that provide positive social impact.

We invest in transformational initiatives that preserve and create affordable workforce housing in rapidly changing communities throughout the Washington, DC region. A few examples of EagleBank’s recent Community Development financing:

February 2023 – Announced financing up to $55 million District of Columbia Tax-Exempt Revenue Bonds to support Mundo Verde Bilingual Public Charter School

At EagleBank, we never forget that “community” is the first word in community bank. Right from the start, we have supported hundreds of local non-profits and organizations through sponsorships and donations.

EagleBank is consistently ranked near the top of Washington Business Journal’s list of Top Corporate Philanthropists for DC area’s midsize companies.

EagleBank’s support of local charities over the course of decades, has helped to further the goals of these wonderful organizations such as: The Children’s Inn at NIH, Whitman-Walker, Habitat for Humanity-Metro Maryland, Trust for the National Mall, and the Historical Society of Washington, DC, and Latin American Youth Center.
