Recognizing Five Loudoun County Organizations

The Loudoun Impact Fund has announced the winning organizations of its inaugural competitive grant cycle. A total of $50,000 has been awarded to five nonprofit organizations in Loudoun County to support capacity building among Loudoun County nonprofits as well as programs that address the wellbeing of children and youth, specifically in the areas of mental health and substance abuse.

The Loudoun Impact Fund is a new giving circle run by the Community Foundation for Northern Virginia that is exclusive to Loudoun County citizens, corporations and service organizations. It was established to invest strategically in Loudoun County to promote education, the arts and the environment, and to support the needs of Loudoun families, children and youth. Members of the Loudoun Impact Fund pool their membership fees and together determine which causes to support. They then review grant applications and make grant recommendations from the Loudoun Impact Fund.

"We were so pleased with the caliber of Loudoun nonprofit organizations," said John Wolff of Capital Fiduciary Advisors, LLC, board member at the Community Foundation for Northern Virginia, and a member of the Loudoun Impact Fund. "The experience has provided an education about the needs of our community while providing a platform through which we can make truly impactful grants."

A total of $50,000 has been awarded to five nonprofit organizations. The largest grant of $20,000 has been awarded to Loudoun Cares for their nonprofit support center, which provides capacity building training, information and referral services for human service needs and space for several small nonprofits.  For information about all of the award winners, click here.
