Thank you to all of our Gala sponsors, supporters and friends who gathered with us to celebrate the impact of the Community Foundation for Northern Virginia in our region.  It was our honor and pleasure to recognize Richard Duvall and Holland & Knight LLP for their outstanding community leadership.

Your support made all the difference! Preliminary results indicate that the evening was the most successful Gala in Community Foundation history, raising approximately $490,000. These funds directly support the Community Foundation, its work, impact, and capacity to grow philanthropy to meet the most critical needs of our region.

First and foremost, it is our deepest hope that you enjoyed the evening and the opportunity it always provides to connect with friends and colleagues, both old and new. But we also hope that you will continue to be engaged and invested our work and mission, long after the paddles are lowered and the tables are cleared.

We do nothing alone at the Community Foundation. Thank you for your enormous generosity and service to our community. You are a part of something that is bigger than all of us and growing by the day - a caring sense of home, place and purpose in Northern Virginia.   

We look forward to bringing you periodic updates on our grant making, donor engagement initiatives, and community support.

Kindest regards and many thanks to each and every one of you,

Eileen Ellsworth
President, Community Foundation for Northern Virginia
