Join 600 business, philanthropic, and community leaders to celebrate how the work of the Community Foundation for Northern Virginia and its partners raises the quality of life for us all while giving a leg up to the region’s neediest.  This mission-critical event raises dollars for the Community Foundation to fund organizations, connect donors to nonprofits doing good work, and engage in community leadership across Northern Virginia.

Since 1978, the Community Foundation has been the premier charitable partner trusted by thousands of generous Northern Virginians.  Our mission is to grow philanthropy to help meet the most critical needs of the community.  Comprised of donor advised funds, community investment funds, scholarship funds and giving circles, we help engage donors in community, meet community needs with community resources and strengthen Northern Virginia.
