Celebrating 20 Years and New Location:  Ribbon Cutting and Open House

On September 5, 2019 the Community Foundation celebrated the opening of its new location with a ribbon cutting, open house, and art show.  Joined by local elected officials, along with government, nonprofit, philanthropic, and business leaders, the Community Foundation honored the Claude Moore Charitable Foundation, for their generous support of the Community Foundation that made the move to the new location possible.  The move marks an important milestone for the Community Foundation, which also celebrates its 20th anniversary this year.

“Today’s grand opening of this facility is a milestone for Loudoun County’s nonprofit community, because it will be a place for the nonprofit community to call their own, to notify every passerby on this road that Loudoun has a heart for the disadvantaged,” said Claude Moore Charitable Foundation Executive Director J. Hamilton Lambert.  “The elected officials here today, I believe every one of them recognizes that there are needs in Loudoun County, unmet needs, and I hope that there’s more focus on that from the elected officials than there has been in the past,” Lambert said.

The new office includes the new Claude Moore Nonprofit Training Center, which will host the Community Foundation’s programs, including the Social Impact Institute, a program providing training for nonprofit executives and board members, and the Nonprofit Academy, a partnership between the Community Foundation and Loudoun Chamber with providing quarterly workshops on nonprofit best practices for fundraising, communications, finance and operations. The center also displays work by local artists, starting with an exhibit by Keith Patterson at the ribbon cutting.  The Community Foundation plans to also make the the Claude Moore Nonprofit Training Center available to nonprofits to reserve for Board meetings and their own trainings, by early 2020.

“I can’t think of a better way for an organization to celebrate its 20th Anniversary than with the ribbon cutting for a fabulous new office and community asset—including a new resource in the Claude Moore Nonprofit Training Center, stated Community Foundation Board of Directors Chairwoman Tracey White.
