Our Involvement in the Community
is a Reflection of Our Commitment
Our DNA as a community bank is to positively impact the local nonprofits, business owners, and government agencies that are the lifeblood of the neighborhoods in which we serve. We strive to go above and beyond the call of duty by actively partnering with organizations in Northern Virginia, MD, and DC.
Outreaches & Outings
Our sleeves are rolled up and ready to get into local outreaches and charity events. Namely, we’ve supported dozens of regional and national nonprofits, conducted special literacy programs at local schools and organizations, and much more.
Our employees exemplify the spirit of John Marshall Bank, frequently volunteering to local charities and outreaches on their own volition. They are the hands and feet of JMB’s mission of adding value to the communities in which we are involved.
But ultimately, they are part of the greater picture of building a better tomorrow through community involvement.
Response to the Pandemic — JMB Branches in the Community
The Alexandria branch partnered with local community organizations — The Alexandria Economic Development Partnership, ALIVE !, & ACT for Alexandria — to get much-needed funds out into the Alexandria community to assist households, businesses, and nonprofits in financial need due to the effects of the pandemic. Read more about our efforts in Alexandria, here. The Reston branch partnered with a local client, Business Engineering, Inc. in coordination with Reston’s YMCA chapter and Fairfax County’s Child Care Resources Meals. This initiative emerged as a response to the shortage of meals for local youth caused by the school shutdowns. JMB was able to join this important cause that ultimately provided 4,480 meals to youth in need.
Prince William County Valor Awards
Our Woodbridge branch has been an annual sponsor of the Prince William County Chamber of Commerce Valor Awards. For over 35 years, the Prince William Chamber of Commerce has hosted this event to publically recognize local police, fire, and rescue service leaders (both career and volunteer). Throughout the years, JMB has had the privilege of being a part of this celebratory event that acknowledges the hard work and dedication of these unsung heroes.
Arlington & A-SPAN
John Marshall Bank’s Arlington region was honored to be a grand sponsor for the opening and ribbon cutting of the Sibert House in Arlington, VA. The Sibert House is birthed out of the Arlington Street People’s Assistance Network (A-SPAN). They provide shelters for the homeless and veterans, help clients achieve better health and overcome substance abuse and mental illness, obtain job security, and more in Arlington County.
As a community bank, we recognize financial literacy is an essential life skill. That’s why our bank officers routinely partner with local educational institutions and nonprofit organizations to provide fundamental lessons on managing personal finances. Students develop a sense of responsibility for spending and saving money while maintaining an accurate balance.
Go-Green & Give Back Campaign
John Marshall Bank recently conducted an in-depth campaign to convert customers who enrolled in paper statements into eStatement clients. The campaign was two-fold in nature, with a reward for the branch with the highest proportion of conversions. The winning branch will be given the opportunity to award a donation to a local nonprofit of their choice. The “Go Green” portion of the campaign allowed us to help conserve our natural resources by converting a significant portion of our clients to electronic statements. On the other hand, the “Give Back” portion focused on allocating the additional funds we received from the conversions into a donation to support a local nonprofit.
