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.

Vital to VCC’s success since the beginning, having the right people with the right expertise and an entrepreneurial spirit made the difference.
