a year to reimagine


When Virginia Community Capital was formed 15 years ago, the goal was to answer the call for an institution with strong ties to localities across the state and a plan to fill the gaps created in the wake of traditional finance. We reimagined and redefined what a community bank could be.

This year, as we celebrate our 15th anniversary, the time has come again to reimagine. The opportunity to make a difference is great. We’re asking big questions and looking for thinkers and doers to join us in charting a course for what’s next. We stand poised and ready to forge new relationships, expand our role as a community partner, and reimagine a better system for all.

Clean Energy is for Everyone

It’s hard to read or watch the news without witnessing the impacts of climate change. NASA’s climate change website notes sea levels are up 3.4 millimeters per year, and global temperatures have risen by 2.1 degrees since 1880. Virginia itself experienced nine “climate disasters” from 2018 to 2019, costing the state $1.6 billion.

At VCC, we understand the importance of investing in clean, renewable methods of power generation to reduce water and air pollution. Our lending to solar developers who receive grants under Washington, D.C.’s Solar for All program captures how these types of loans can have not just global impact, but social impact on a local level.
