About Our Charity

The Community Foundation for Northern Virginia is a visionary funder that has directed millions of charitable dollars to people in need since 1978.  Its mission is to grow philanthropy to respond to critical need and seed innovation in the region.  It is committed to building a community that works for everyone.

During 2017 alone, the Community Foundation awarded a record breaking $4.7 million in grants and scholarships and raised $13 million in new gifts. Over 1,000 generous individuals, families, and businesses who feel passionately about our community have made this success possible.

The Community Foundation celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2018. No one can predict what Northern Virginia will need or want 40 years from now. But the Community Foundation will still be here, responding to need, seeding innovation, and leading and convening the community.
