The Future Fund is the Community Foundation for Northern Virginia’s giving circle for young professionals.  It offers members opportunities to learn about the critical needs of the region, donate at affordable levels to the causes they care about most, and meet their professional peers – other community advocates who see the benefit of pooling monetary contributions to increase the impact of their support to local charitable organizations.

The annual Awards Gala is a chance for Future Fund members and friends to meet the grant-winning organizations who were recipients of the group’s competitive grant cycle.  This year, the group focused its philanthropy to benefit organizations supporting veterans of the Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom wars and their families.  Linden Resources in Arlington and Quality of Life Foundation in Woodbridge both received grants of $20,000.

Support for the Future Fund is provided by the Claude Moore Charitable Foundation and Womble Carlyle.
