Our Northern Virginia team works closely with individuals, families, and businesses to match donor intent with community opportunity to create deeper local impact.

Community Leadership
We provide an important community leadership role in Northern Virginia as a bridge between those who want to give, local government and business, and local nonprofit organizations.

The Foundation’s efforts to help residents attain economic security is achieved through its community leadership work that focuses primarily on three issue areas.

Each area is designed to achieve a critical community goal:


Safety Net
Strengthen and preserve the safety net to meet basic human needs (i.e., food and shelter)


Prepare youth to graduate high school ready for college and careers

Grad-Cap-IconWorkforce Development
Help workers gain and acquire the skills and credentials needed to thrive in the region’s economy
