Craig KendallCraig KendallThis interview is with Craig Kendall, President  & Founder of Financial Investments, Inc. Mr. Kendall has served as a Community Foundation Community Investment Funds committee volunteer.

How have you been involved with the Community Foundation for Northern Virginia over the years?

We have been actively involved with the Community Foundation for the last 5 years.  We have helped extensive with the Community Investment Fund program.  Each year we have contributed.

Equally important we have actively reviewed those community service grant applications that are submitted to the Community Foundation.

Why did you choose to partner with/support the Community Foundation?

The Community Foundation for Northern Virginia is perfect for us as we look to continually help our local community.   The mission if the Community Foundation is to reach out and serve the community and to help those in the community that also are looking to give back to the community. They are able to reach out, touch, and keep in touch with those community service organizations in a manner that we could never do personally. They understand the community needs and areas of emphasis that are truly needed here in Northern Virginia.

What a perfect combination this has been and the Community Foundation fills these needs and services by effectively and efficiently matching those in the giving community with those in need in the community.
