Community Believers Loan Program –
Driven by a lending philosophy that understands how non-profits work
Kasasa@Work in the Community – An easy, free program to add to your benefits package that provides free checking plus rewards for your employees
Community Believers Merchant Services – Acquiring donations has never been easier, with equipment and services to save
Plus, Community Believers members enjoy
FREE opportunities to promote their organization, network with other non-profit professionals, recruit volunteers and more. The Community Believers resource website at communitybelievers.com provides:
Members-only directory for non-profits
to market themselves
Places to post volunteer opportunities
and event details
Client testimonials and profile highlights
Ability to cross-promote volunteer opportunities with bank employees

K AlferÍo, Glen Allen Cultural Arts Center
The Cultural Arts Center at Glen Allen is a true gem of our community, offering a wealth of inspiring and enriching performances, exhibits and classes. Within the 50,000-square-foot space, the Center boasts a 350-seat theater, ballroom, four art galleries, six studio spaces
and much, much more.
“There’s just a lot going on,” says K Alferío, President of the Center. “Our theater is actually used about 50 weeks of the year! We are home to the Henrico Theater Company, the Latin Ballet of Virginia performs here, and many different musical and art series are shown here. Plus, we offer an abundance of classes – from photography and painting
to Lego art and robotics.”
The Center, which opened in 1999, also rents its space out for private events and meetings. As a non-profit organization, these rentals along with community support and smart business management allow the Center to continue its role as a vital community resource for creativity and education. Sonabank has proven to be a supportive partner of its financial and business management needs.
“Sonabank was interested in working with the Center as a non-profit,” says K. “The Community Believers program has proven to be very helpful. We’re not big business, so there are some things we need others’ expertise with, and that is something Sonabank has been really willing to do.
“They took the time to ask what we needed as a non-profit and really listened. So far, I’ve really enjoyed some of the workshops and learning experiences they provide,” continues K. “We have a fairly small staff so I don’t have an HR person, and the Sonabank HR representative was at one of our meetings and told us to give her a call whenever we needed assistance and she would lend us her expertise. It’s incredible.”
“Community Believers is a great thing to be involved with. I’m looking forward to us doing even more.”
