That’s why we’re committed to giving back to our communities — to ensure a brighter future for everyone. FVCbank is a family, and we want that feeling of belonging to extend well beyond our walls, spreading out into the communities that we serve. Being a good corporate citizen means actively playing a role in the community; this is why many of our managers, officers and board members are involved in local philanthropic and civic organizations.
We strive both as a company and as individuals to improve the quality of life in the communities we serve. First Virginia Community Bank delivers banking and credit needs to each community, including low- and moderate-income individuals.
