Community News

Sturdy Savings Bank was built on a simple principle: serving the community. Our mission is the same ~ some 93 years later.

Sturdy's employees are committed to neighborhood service. You'll find us where it matters most: your little league fields, senior citizen centers, schools, firehouses and churches. We'll be at the AARP luncheons, the local symphony concerts and the food pantry fundraisers. These pictures tell our story. We have grown from a small town savings and loan association to a local, full service bank that understands there is no place like "home". We are dedicated to our role as a community neighbor, partner and leader.

The Bank's donations are allocated to non-profit organizations making a difference in Cape May County. Click Here for a donation request form.

Sturdy Savings Bank is committed to financial education and offers several free, customized community programs. The Bank's certified 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.
