What is a Community Foundation?

We are a broad and flexible vehicle for charitable giving and community investment for generations to come.

Local Assets

We are your community’s “savings” account. We build permanent community endowment.

Local Needs

Our grants support your vision—culture, nature, human services, and education—our community’s spectrum of need.

Local Leadership

We are involved in your backyard as workshop conveners, network builders, grantmakers, and changemakers.

Join your charitable vision with the Community Foundation for Loudoun and Northern Fauquier and amplify your satisfaction and fulfillment by helping your local community. Work with us to build something everlasting here at home to bring you…


We are stewards of our community’s “savings account.” Funds you create with us will be here for generations; serving and funding the charities and programs you care about most.


We make it simple. We handle all state and federal tax filings and financial reports. We offer a variety of options to be sure your vision is part of our work. And, if you wish, you or your heirs stay involved in grantmaking.

Investment Expertise

Our work is a community and financial investment. Our carefully crafted investment policies are designed to protect your legacy, while also fulfilling its promise.


We accept a range of assets, from securities, to closely held stock, to real estate, to cash. We strive to work closely with you and your financial advisors to ensure your vision and financial goals are achieved.


You name your fund and decide its charitable purpose. Grants are announced from your fund making recipients fully aware of your generosity, or,  with total anonymity.
