Community News

Sturdy Savings Bank was built on a simple principle: serving the community. Our mission is the same ~ some 96 years later.

Sturdy Savings Bank employees are committed to neighborhood service. You will find us where it matters most: your schools, recreation centers, non-profit organizations and churches. We are at chamber of commerce meetings, concerts, historical preservation events and veterans’ fundraisers. These pictures tell our story. Throughout nearly a century of growth, from a small savings and loan association to a full-service bank with 14 branch locations, Sturdy Savings Bank has always understood that there is no place like "home.”

Sturdy Savings Bank is also committed to financial education and offers several free, customized community programs. The Bank's experienced staff is available to assist your school or community group with classes on budgeting, saving, credit and more. Sturdy also offers free branch tours for school and community groups. Contact our Retail Banking Department at 609-463-5260, for additional information.

We are dedicated to our role as a community neighbor, partner and leader. The Bank's donations are allocated to organizations that are making a difference throughout Cape May County and the City of Somers Point. Click Here for a Donation Request Form.
