Our Community:

Bank of the James serves Central Virginia, a vibrant and charming community nestled in the eastern foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Here, along the banks of the scenic James River, there is endless opportunity for adventure, entertainment, amusement, relaxation, and more. Our community is rich with historic sites, exciting recreational and cultural opportunities, extraordinary shopping, gracious dining and first class accommodations. With a blend of classic southern style and the innovative, thoughtful development of business and community, our region offers a small town atmosphere with the opportunities of a larger urban environment.

It's just that small town atmosphere that fosters one of the important philosophies of our bank: our commitment to making our community a better place to live, work and do business. We fulfill this commitment by encouraging volunteerism among our employees, by providing financial support to many worthy organizations, and by providing good jobs to over 100 members of this great region.

Community Involvement - A Commitment to Volunteerism

Bank of the James encourages strong employee commitment to community involvement by volunteering time and talents to worthy organizations. Whether serving lunches at The Daily Bread, playing in a Bowl-A-Thon, running in a race for a cause, or ringing the bell at a Salvation Army Christmas Kettle, our employees are helping make our community better.
