Join the Community Foundation for Northern Virginia and help “Raise the Region” at its annual celebration of local philanthropy.

This event attracts hundreds of regional business, philanthropic and community leaders and supports the Community Foundation’s ability to grow philanthropy to respond to need and seed innovation throughout the region. The event will be live-streamed, and sponsors and guests will have the option to host “pod parties” complete with food and wine provided by the Community Foundation or join from the comfort of home.

It will include an online auction that will be promoted to the Community Foundation’s network of more than 12,000 individuals, a video that will air live right from this page or from your device after you have logged in on October 8th at 7:00 pm, and opportunities to engage and connect with our community.

Sponsorships are available from $250 and include visibility throughout the year and during the event. Registration to participate in the event and online auction is free.

We are currently accepting donations of auction items for the online auction.
