Community Support

Our commitment goes beyond financing

Farm Credit of the Virginias values our customer-owners and the rural communities they call home. For that reason, we allocate resources to support our rural communities and the organizations keeping them strong.

Our community engagement ranges from concerted local efforts to greater regional support. Causes we're passionate about include food security, veteran services and resources, youth agriculture involvement and literacy, disaster relief and more. Check out some recent opportunities in which we doubled-down on our commitment to strengthening our rural communities through engagement and financial support.
