About the Branch

Discover Bank combines the convenience of 24/7 online banking with the personal face-to-face attention you can only get from a brick and mortar branch.

Discover Bank’s strong roots in the Delaware community continue today at our branch, where we aim to help our neighbors meet their financial goals through quality savings and loan products and exceptional service.

History

Discover Bank was founded in 1911 as a community bank in Greenwood, Delaware, under the name of Greenwood Trust Company and was renamed Discover Bank in 2000.

Discover Bank was chartered as a banking corporation under the laws of the State of Delaware, and its deposits are insured up to applicable limits by the FDIC. The Bank is regulated by the State of Delaware and the FDIC.

Discover Bank has always had a tradition of delivering hometown service and offering banking products that are both up to date and relevant to customers. We intend to honor this tradition and continue to provide valuable and convenient financial services backed by exceptional customer service.

Discover Bank offers certificates of deposit, money market deposit accounts, and other consumer financial products and services. For example, Discover Bank is the issuer of the Discover Card.

Discover Bank is located at 502 East Market Street, Greenwood, Delaware, just a few blocks away from the original Greenwood site.

Discover in the Community

Discover Bank’s goal is to help people in our community achieve a brighter financial future. This goal, along with our corporate values, guides us in being good corporate citizens. We are committed to helping the people of Sussex County, and throughout Delaware, reach their financial goals and objectives.

Since Discover purchased Greenwood Trust, the retail bank has provided savings and lending products that gives people the opportunity to reach their financial goals. Our products have helped people achieve the dream of homeownership, pay for college, prepare for retirement, start or manage a business and save for the future.

As a component of our Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) compliance efforts, Discover Bank invests and lends millions of dollars to support affordable housing and economic development initiatives in Delaware and the greater regional area. These loans and investments have provided people in our community with funding for:

  • Home purchase and refinance
  • Affordable rental units
  • Community facilities
  • Employment opportunities

Discover Bank is supportive of our non-profit community through various sponsorships and charitable giving. Our charitable activities include grants to:

  • Create, stabilize and improve access to affordable housing
  • Promote financial education, student achievement and job readiness
  • Provide for economic development and small business growth
  • Social services that meet a health or social service need for low- and moderate-income individuals and families

Volunteering is also at the heart of our culture. Each year, Discover employees spend hundreds of hours in our local schools teaching children about savings. They also provide technical assistance to area non-profits, serve on boards and committees, building homes, serve meals to families in need and provide a variety of services to many good causes.
