The Community Foundation’s annual Gala has been described as a “homecoming” – an opportunity for more than 600 members of the Northern Virginia community to celebrate our region’s diversity, growth, and the Community Foundation’s ever growing capacity to support our neediest neighbors and seed innovative solutions to complex social issues.

Since 1978, the Community Foundation has been the premier charitable partner trusted by thousands of generous Northern Virginians.  Our mission is to grow philanthropy respond to critical need and seed innovation in the region.
