BANK NEWS & EVENTS
Monument Bank opened its doors in September 2005. The team of experienced businesspeople, professionals and bankers who came together to organize the Bank wanted to offer an alternative that would deliver the right financial solutions to the businesses, professionals and non-profit organizations that call Montgomery County home. And we would do it with unparalleled convenience, exceptional service, total trust and lifelong relationships.
Currently having two branch offices, one in Bethesda and a second in Silver Spring, Monument Bank has proven that there doesn’t have to be a branch on every corner to make banking convenient. Our state-of-the-art online banking platform, services such as Express Deposit and bank officers who routinely conduct business in the customer’s office have allowed us to grow to $380 million in assets in the relative absence of brick and mortar.
During the current challenging economic times, Monument Bank has continued to make loans to credit-worthy applicants. Our decisions are not based on a quick review of the numbers, ratios and collateral. Our lenders evaluate with great care what is sometimes hidden behind the numbers – things such as the borrower’s character and sense of purpose. Our SBA Loan Department, with an SBA lender hired in May 2010, has brought the Bank’s ranking from 25th to 8th among all banks as of September 30, 2011, according to the Washington Metropolitan Office of the SBA.
Community is important to us. We support our local non-profits in many ways, financially and through active volunteerism. We went one step further in late 2011 and formed a Non-Profit Division with designated employees who have extensive experience with non-profits and an understanding of the types of products and services that are important to this crucial part of our economy. We offer to all our customers a full range of deposit, loan and cash management products, fairly priced, and delivered with the highest level of customer service.
Monument Bank is in growth mode. Over the coming months we will look seriously to expand into more space for our continually growing staff. We cordially invite you to come grow with us!

Community service is at the foundation of our mission. We have been fortunate to have the resources to donate money to worthy causes in our community. But just as important, the staff of Monument Bank has donated hundreds of volunteer hours to support some of the non-profits that make Montgomery County a better place to live for all our residents. Every edition of MonumentNews highlights a non-profit we have supported. To read our quarterly newsletters, go to our home page and click on the MonumentNews link (It’s NEW!!!) and learn more about us and our community support.
To name just a few, our recent community support has benefited the following:
Rebuilding Together - Montgomery County (www.rebuildingtogethermc.org), the Christ Child Society (christchilddc.org), the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Rescue Squad (www.bccrs.org), Avon Foundation Breast Cancer Walk (www.avonwalk.org), CSAAC (Community Services for Autistic Adults and Children-www.csaac.org), Bethesda Big Train, the Combat Soldier’s Recovery Fund and the Victory Fund. We have also been the Event Sponsor since 2005 for the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Chamber’s Annual Golf Classic (www.bcccc.org) and have had our employees turn out in large numbers to volunteer for the annual Taste of Bethesda and Dodgeball for Diabetes.
