The Community Foundation for Northern Virginia partners with donors to grow philanthropy for the region. Its asset base has more than doubled in recent years and currently stands at more than $72 million in donor advised funds, permanent funds, and other charitable endowments.
Since its inception in 1978, the Community Foundation has awarded more than $50 million in grants and scholarships to support organizations in Northern Virginia and beyond. It awarded than $5.4 million in grants and scholarships alone during the fiscal year that ended June 30, 2019, including $812,563 in grants from discretionary grant funds and from donor advised funds that the Community Foundation directly brokered to help respond to need and seed innovation in Northern Virginia.
In addition, we are civic and social leaders, helping to convene the community to address important regional issues and challenges, and we routinely commission and publish data driven research reports to help shine a light on the most critical needs of our region.
