About Movement Bank

In 1919, a group of African-Americans in rural Virginia gathered $20,000 to form a bank that would love and value people the establishment rejected. For a century, First State Bank faithfully served its community, rich or poor, black or white. It helped farmers turn cash to crop and back to cash again, turn homes and businesses into something a family owned and made it possible for young men and women to say, “I’m the first one in my family to go to college.”

In 2017, First State Bank became Movement Bank. First State Bank's story is now Movement Bank's proud heritage. First State Bank's legacy is their future standard. That’s a big reason why we steward your money faithfully, serve your family with integrity and support the Movement Foundation to bring life, light and hope to people in need.
