try this formula
=SUMPRODUCT((MONTH(A2:A17)=1)*(C2:C17))
where 1 is representing 1st month (January), so for Feb change to 2, MArch 3 etc.

Maybe you will need to replace semicolons (;) in my formula with commas (,) - it depends on your regional settings

I'd suggest a helper column (I inserted it as a new column B) to create the formatted months for you using:
=TEXT(A2,"mmm")
then you can use:

=SUMIFS($D:$D,$C:$C,$F2,$B:$B,G$1)

See attached. I also added a pivot table version which will create the whole table for you.

SUMIFS will not allow for the use of TEXT in the function so you would require the helper column. (or use of a range of dates).

As for the SUMPRODUCT formula it works by handling the data as an array...

Sumproduct multiplies the results of a row of array data... then sums the rows...

So for data:
20 | 0 | 1 | 1
30 | 1 | 1 | 0
40 | 1 | 1 | 1
50 | 1 | 1 | 1

20x0x1x1 = 0
30x1x1x0 = 0
40x1x1x1 = 40
50x1x1x1 = 50
so sumproduct = 90.

In your data the 1 and 0 are gained as the result of the boolean true false result of the formula converted using N() ...  N(turns true false into 1 or 0)

This is how SUMPRODUCT works like SUMIFS with a bit more flexibility.

Does this make some sense or would you like further info?

I just want to know what "N" stands for in formula?

i.e. =SUMPRODUCT($C$2:$C$17,N(TEXT($A$2:$A$17,"mmm")=F$1),N($B$2:$B$17=$E2))

You'd have to build up month strings then use a conjunction of > 1st of month and 1st of next month, so something like:

=SUMIFS($C:$C,$B:$B,$E2,$A:$A,">="&DATEVALUE("01-"&F$1&"-2014"),$A:$A,"<"&IF(G$1="",DATE(2015,1,1),DATEVALUE("01-"&G$1&"-2014")))

SteveCommented:
N is a function in the same way as SUM of IF.

N converts values to numbers (similar to using -- or *1)
N in this case converts the booleans from True / False to 1 or 0

N(False) = 0
N(True) = 1

The excel help has more on the function.
