RICHMOND, VA – Virginia Business Systems (VBS), headquartered in Richmond, VA,

BizSense, highlights the extensive donations of Richmond’s various businesses. This

philanthropic side to the Richmond Business Market highlights over 50 companies,

either locally based or out-of-town firms with local operations. VBS ranked number 16.

service. Many of these are donations than cannot be tallied, but are vital to the quality

of life in Richmond, VA. We are proud of this designation as a Most Generous
