CHEVY CHASE, Md,–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Forbright Bank, a nationwide FDIC insured bank helping accelerate the transition to a sustainable and low-carbon economy, today announced Growth Savings, a new online high yield savings account to help customers save for their future while helping support a brighter, more sustainable future. With a 5.30% APY*, Growth Savings offers a competitive rate, no minimums, no fees, and no hidden charges – enabling customers to grow their money while contributing to a more sustainable tomorrow thanks to Forbright Bank’s commitment to responsible and sustainable banking. As part of the nationwide launch, Growth Savings customers can qualify to receive an America the Beautiful National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass to visit any of the country’s more than 400 national parks.

“Not only does our high yield savings account provide a great rate and best-in-class digital experience, but by saving with Forbright Bank, customers can earn for their future while we invest in a brighter future,” said Matt Quale, President of Digital Banking at Forbright Bank.

Growth Savings accounts are fully online and available nationwide. Currently, Growth Savings customers who maintain a specified average daily balance for 90 consecutive days will qualify to receive a one-year pass to America’s national parks. The National Parks Pass promotion, which is available for a limited time only, was launched in conjunction with Forbright Bank’s support for the National Park Foundation and is designed to provide financial benefits for customers while helping more people enjoy the outdoors.

In March, Forbright Bank announced a $250,000 donation to the National Park Foundation to help support initiatives that preserve America’s national parks and connect more people to the outdoors. The partnership, which arose out of the two organizations’ shared commitment to protecting and conserving America’s natural treasures, consists of the donation, employee engagement, and special offerings like Annual National Parks Passes for qualifying Forbright Bank customers.

*Annual Percentage Yield (APY) is accurate as of June 3, 2024. APY may change at any time before or after the account is opened. Available only online.
