Where It’s More Than the Money…It’s About Serving the Community!
(Updated March 2018)
First National Bank of Waynesboro is dedicated to making our community a great place to live. In addition to supporting many local organizations financially, the bank also coordinates and participates in a variety of community projects, charitable fundraisers and local events. Below is a list of some of those projects.
Giving Back to the Community We’ve Been a Member of Since 1905!
D.O.O.R. (Downtown Organization of Retailers)
- The bank supports this organization by providing leadership, financial support and volunteers for downtown events and projects such as Christmas on Liberty Square, Boss Hog Cook-Off, Thunder on Liberty Classic Car Show, Earth Day Festival, and Trick or Treat on Liberty Street.
- Christmas on Liberty Square and the Boss Hog Cook-Off each attract more than 3,000 people.
- D.O.O.R was created by a First National Bank employee in 1999; leadership is still held by FNB employees.
- The bank allows employees opportunity to earn time off when they volunteer for downtown events.

The Wimberly House
- At Christmas on Liberty Square First National has an annual fundraiser, which is staffed by FNB employees and all proceeds go to the Wimberly House.
- FNB supports many school events and projects at local public and private schools. We are active in furthering school groups from the marching band, show choir and athletics.
- FNB participates in various Career Days and Business Expos.
- FNB offers the Education First Grant through our A+ Account. Teachers are eligible to apply for grants that cover items that fall outside the normal school budget twice a year (fall and spring).
- FNB partners with Banzai: Financial Literacy Software at both public and private schools to further educate our young people in the importance of financial stability. See video below for more details.
In addition to our community involvement, FNB also encourages employees to take part in organizations of their choice. Many times FNB allows employees to assist these organizations during normal work hours. See the list below of some of the groups our employees serve (included but not limited to)…
