Growing Philanthropy and Making a DIfference in the Region

The Community Foundation is committed to building a community that works to everyone. Since it was founded in 1978, it has made a profound impact on the region.

It has partnered with more than 200 donors who have established charitable funds to support causes they care about and leave lasting legacies of giving. It has awarded more than $50 million in cumulative grants to support the philanthropy of its donors and to respond to need and seed innovation throughout the Northern Virginia region. It has released data-driven reports to better understand the needs of the region. And it has become a civic leader, hosting regional events and launching initiatives to address current issues facing the community.

We do nothing alone at the Community Foundation. See the Community Foundation’s stories of impact, and read our reports and publications, all made possible through countless partnerships within the community.
