About Us

Our Vision

At Sandy Spring Bank Foundation, we believe that every person should have the chance for a happy, healthy life. There are far too many in our communities who struggle for even basic needs and, as a result, lack hope.

We seek to partner with local organizations that are devoted to improving the lives of individuals and families in the communities served by Sandy Spring Bank. Our vision is that one day each of our neighbors will have a home, good health and ultimately hope for a brighter tomorrow.
