Our Values

The Community Foundation for Northern Virginia is committed to building a community that works for everyone. Please join us in grant making, dialogue, outreach and advocacy.

Our community is stronger when all people are respected, welcomed, and invited to share their assets and contributions in community building.

We are wholeheartedly devoted to our neediest neighbors and most vulnerable and marginalized populations and work tirelessly to better meet their needs.

We work to bring about a more equitable and inclusive prosperity that marries our economic strength with the full breadth of our diverse community.

The Community Foundation celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2018 by developing The Permanent Fund For Northern Virginia, a community endowment that will be a forever source of critical support for our most vulnerable neighbors.
