Here at Sterling State Bank, we believe that community involvement is crucial. We work hard every single year to collaborate with our local charities and nonprofit businesses to give as much funding as possible — because we believe that supporting your own community comes first.
There is always work to be done right in your backyard, and it can often get overlooked; so we’ve worked hard to partner with those who need it most. From children to veterans, disabled to athletic, and everything in between, we make sure to partner with a variety of programs and businesses so that everyone gets the help they need.

Here at Sterling State Bank, we know that every dollar matters when it comes to monetary funds. That’s why we work hard to go above and beyond to donate as much as possible every year to projects that we believe in. We have financially supported various nonprofits and charities both locally in the communities we serve, as well as in other parts of the country and world.

Not only do we donate monetarily, but we also donate our time. Our team of dedicated employees find ways to volunteer in the community every single year, whether it's helping out at events, building projects, or handing out food. We believe that getting involved in the community makes a difference in many ways, and volunteering is one of those outlets.

We also love to engage in and support the events that take place locally. From charity dinners to Christmas parties to local raffles, we make sure to take our team and participate in as many as possible. The value of community is something we don’t take lightly, and engagement in those events is one way we love to connect with those around us.
