About Countybank

Our Mission: To Serve Our Clients, Our Communities, and Our Associates

Countybank began its service to the Greenwood community in 1933, when it was founded by a group of Greenwood businessmen as The County Bank. While the bank has evolved through its history to operate as a complete family of financial services, our core mission has never changed. We remain an independent, locally owned institution that is focused on meeting the financial needs of the families and businesses in Upstate, SC including Greenwood, Greenville, Greer, Simpsonville and Anderson communities.

How We Give Back

The Countybank Foundation was formed in 1971, under the leadership of former bank president R. Thornwell Dunlap Jr., to identify specific charitable needs and to distribute funds to selected organizations on a yearly basis. Since 1990, the Foundation has contributed more than one million dollars to a wide variety of local civic, educational and cultural programs, including the establishment of several college scholarships and endowments.

In addition to the Foundation's contributions, Countybank employees spend thousands of volunteer hours in their communities. Currently, more than two-thirds of the associates at Countybank volunteer with local charitable and civic organizations.
