The Community Foundation charges a Foundation Support Fee on a reducing scale as follows:
  • 1.25% on balances up to $1,000,000
  • 1% on balances between $1,000,001 - $3,000,000
  • 0.75% on balances $3,000,001 and above
This minimal fee enables the Community Foundation to hire and maintain staff, serve donors, make certain grants to worthy programs and nonprofits, commission data and research on the critical needs of the region, engage in leadership initiatives around important local causes, and continue to serve the philanthropic needs of Northern Virginia. The schedule is subject to change from time to time by the Board of Directors.
