The Family Giving Program

at the Community Foundation for Northern Virginia

Our Family Giving Program allows each member of your family to achieve both their personal and charitable goals through philanthropy. You can get the whole family involved in creating a legacy of giving, specific to your charitable intent, that will be woven into the fabric of Northern Virginia for years to come. For more information, you can download our Family Giving Program brochure here.

Invest in the Future of the Community

Our staff has broad expertise in the urgent needs of our community through data and research presented by Insight Region, our center for community research. We’ll work alongside your family to directly align the causes you care about to the opportunities available in our region.

Cultivate the Next Generation of Philanthropists

We’re excited to provide opportunities for your family to give impactfully. From Information Sessions on performing due diligence on nonprofits, to Site Visits that allow you to see the impact of your gift, we’re here to equip your family with the tools they need to give meaningfully.

Honor Your Family's Legacy Through Giving

With our Family Giving Program, you can work together as a family to name your fund, set your goals, and define an impactful values statement. This is all fully specific to your family, and will be passed from generation to generation as long as your fund remains active.
