Virginia Commerce Bank is proud to announce the creation of The Virginia Commerce Bank Foundation. The donor advised fund is managed by the Arlington Community Foundation, where R.B. “Randy” Anderson, Jr., the Bank’s Executive Vice President and Chief Lending Officer, serves on the Board of Trustees as its Treasurer. After many years of involvement and support with the Arlington Community Foundation, Virginia Commerce Bank welcomed the partnership as a great opportunity to formalize its charitable giving program and continue its support of non-profit organizations throughout Northern Virginia and Fredericksburg.
