The Community Foundation for Loudoun and Northern Fauquier Counties made 448 grants to 238 nonprofit organizations last year, exceeding $1.8 million. Since its inception, the Community Foundation has granted more than $11.7 million.
The Community Foundation received more than 2,400 gifts from donors, a 60% increase over the number of gifts received in 2020. “Our community has stepped up to the plate as COVID and general challenges have put so many of our local nonprofits and their missions in demand. Clients served and their needs have grown in ways that can be invisible to the rest of us,” said President Amy E. Owen. “The Community Foundation’s donors who fuel our grantmaking really are the heroes of their work.”
The organization is preparing to host Give Choose March 29th, the community’s largest day of online giving at GiveChoose.org. “Give Choose is a really exciting day where we all band together and give to nonprofits doing great work in our communities,” said Nicole Acosta, Vice President of Grants and Nonprofit Programs. In 2021, Give Choose raised a landmark $824,307 for local nonprofits.
