A community we care about.
Taking Care of Our Communities
The Foundation’s annual Golf Classic has raised close to $2.5 million for Breast Cancer Research since its inception in 2005. These funds have enabled local hospitals and other cancer-focused organizations in our community to continue ongoing research and provide support services—all dedicated to putting an end to breast cancer.

Established in 2009, the Eagle Helping Hands program facilitates employee giving and volunteering. Our mission is to create worthwhile and exciting opportunities for EagleBank Employees to express their community spirit. With Eagle Helping Hands, employees get involved with others, build new friendships inside and outside the bank, while benefiting our community and our bank. Some ongoing Eagle Helping Hands events...
Shepherd’s Table: Eagle Helping Hands volunteers partner with Shepherd’s Table, an organization in Silver Spring, Maryland that offers basic services, including meals, social services, medical support, clothing and other assistance to the homeless. With the organization, our volunteers do everything from gardening to serving food to those who are less fortunate.
Summer Reading Party: Since 2012, our Eagle Helping Hands volunteers have teamed with the Arlington Partnership for Affordable Housing to throw a Kids’ Summer Reading Party. The best part of this experience has always been sharing and distributing the collection of donated books and reading with the children.
Since 2002, our employees have been participating in the National Capital Area Kidney Walk -- Founded By The Ron and Joy Paul Foundation, which has grown from approximately 40 walkers to over 900, and has raised over $1,200,000. In 2015 alone, over 30 employees participated in the walk, raising over $25,000—our best fundraising effort to-date.
In cooperation with the Montgomery College Foundation, EagleBank awards an annual scholarship to a student pursuing financial studies at Montgomery College, who will then move on to complete a degree at the Smith Business School at the Universities at Shady Grove.
On May 7, 2015, EagleBank entered into a long-term relationship with George Mason University. It is broad-based and multi-faceted. EagleBank will be providing scholarships to students, hiring graduates and alumni, sponsoring internships, hosting speaker series, and more.
And as part of the agreement, on July 1st the Patriot Center was renamed the EagleBank Arena. Home to Mason basketball games, high school graduations, concerts and events, the EagleBank Arena will have over half a million visitors a year.
This new alliance is just further evidence of our strong support for Northern Virginia and for the community generally. At EagleBank, we never forget that community is the first word in community bank.

Every August, our employees collect school supplies to donate to the Children’s Program at the District Alliance for Safe Housing (DASH), which provides housing opportunities and support services for homeless families in Montgomery County, Maryland.
Since 2012, EagleBank has partnered with EverFi to bring their web-based financial literacy course to high school students. By using the latest in new-media technology to bring financial concepts to life, students learned critical skills that will help them become better-informed, more responsible citizens. There are up to eleven high schools participating in the program—four in DC, five in Fairfax County and one each in Arlington and Loudoun Counties.

EagleBank’s Treasurer, Charles Levingston, took to the classroom for a day to share some first-hand knowledge with a group of exceptionally bright second-graders. The students at Bannockburn Elementary School in Bethesda, Maryland, joined in an interesting discussion on some of the basic principles of banking and finance.
