Our Community

This Is Our VillageRichmond, Virginia is our Village. And we believe in supporting the communities that have supported us. That is why every Village Bank employee receives two paid volunteer days per year to use at a charitable cause of their choosing.

Our employees dedicate hundreds of hours per year to various leadership roles throughout the area including Scouts BSA, rotary clubs, churches, schools, and dozens of other area programs. We're not just bankers. We're community builders.

2018 Holiday Cards for the Troops

We are thrilled to partner with Mix 98.1 FM and the amazing folks at the USO for our third annual Holiday Cards For Our Troops drive. Send a little bit of holiday cheer to deployed service members who can’t be home to celebrate the holiday season with their loved ones. We are accepting signed greeting cards, handwritten notes, and homemade cards. Please drop your cards off at any Village Bank or Village Bank Mortgage location before through November 30th. Envelopes and stamps ARE NOT required. Take a look at this video from last year to see a portion of the cards we received.
