Recognized for Exceptional Performance

Indisputably One of the Nation’s Strongest Banks

March 2020: Coral Gables, Florida, BauerFinancial, Inc., the Nation’s Premier Bank Rating Firm, commends Cornerstone Community Bank, Red Bluff and Redding, California on its achievement of another 5-Star Superior Rating. Not only has Cornerstone Community Bank earned Bauer’s highest (5-Star) rating for financial strength and stability, it has maintained that top rating for 40consecutive quarters, sailing through one of the most trying economic times of our lifetimes and giving it an added designation of “Exceptional Performance Bank”. This status is reserved for banks that have earned Bauer’s highest rating consistently for at least 10 consecutive years. It also indicates that Cornerstone Community Bank is indisputably one of the strongest banks in the nation.

“As the president of BauerFinancial, I am often asked what it takes to be a 5-Star bank,” reflects Karen Dorway, president of the research firm. “Like so many other things in life, success in banking boils down to knowledge. Knowledge of banking, of course, but knowledge of its customers and the communities the bank serves are equally important. This intimacy enables the bank to steer clear of danger and work with customers for a common goal. It’s what gets so many community banks, like Cornerstone Community Bank, through the tough times unscathed.”

Cornerstone Community Bank was established in 2006 and has been working side by side with neighbors and friends for 14 years, helping to make the community what it is today. Currently, Cornerstone Community Bank operates through three conveniently located offices in Red Bluff and Redding and can also be found online at
