The Community Foundation in Northern Virginia has supported the growing nonprofit sector and concentrates on increasing the understanding of the sector with emerging philanthropists.  Our partnership with Care To Lunch, a “lunch and learn” gathering started by a local philanthropists, happens monthly and exposes potential donors to quality nonprofit organizations meeting the critical needs of northern Virginia residents.  At each lunchtime program, donors have the opportunity to hear from the nonprofit and the nonprofit receives a small grant from The Community Foundation.

In Fairfax County we’ve worked with public sector officials to rethink how they provide public support to the nonprofit sector.  And we are currently working with the County on issues affecting the public education system.

The Community Foundation in Northern Virginia can help individuals, families, businesses and organizations fulfill their philanthropic aspirations.
