First Bank

First Bank

(888) 647-1265 | 112 W King St, Strasburg, VA 22657

With a name like First Bank, of course, we believe there’s power in one. You make a better world one person at a time. And you build a better bank, one satisfied customer, at a time. With more than 100 years’ experience on our side, we’ve carved out a singular niche. We’re one bank that’s both individualized and highly innovative. Large enough to offer everything you desire. Small enough to know you by name. Today, it’s far easier to overlook the importance of one. But at First Bank, we serve and highly value the individual. We believe one person can make a difference. One leader can set the pace. One choice can have an impact. And we’re one bank that’s here to help. First Bank There’s power in one.”

Special Benefactors


The Pruitt Foundation

The The Pruitt Foundation was founded in 2004 by Cecil Pruitt, Jr., a successful real estate tycoon. His vision was simple, he wanted to make a difference in people’s lives. The foundation’s early roots were cemented in helping disadvantaged children reach their full potential and joined forces with the Youth for Tomorrow organization to achieve that mission. As the foundation grew it branched out into other areas and has provided funds to other non-profit organizations. The foundation funded an endowment scholarship through the Guadalupe County Aggie Mom’s Club, and helped pay the medical bills for people by donating money to the HealthWell Foundation, and We Will Survive Cancer. The foundation supports our military veterans and their families by supporting organizations like Disabled Sports USA and Luke’s Wings. The foundation provided help to those in need during the holidays by donating money to Blessed Angel’s Community Center. Preserving our planet is also important and the foundation has donated money to organizations like The Mote Marina Laboratory and Save Our Seabirds to help them protect the fragile planet that we call home. The Pruitt Foundation purchases a ticket for every Shenandoah student who wished to attend the Business Symposium.
