Frequently Asked Questions

The Community Foundation understands that the common good is common ground.

In that spirit, we’ve been working with nonprofit community partners, the Loudoun County Health Department, the Virginia Department of Health, and StayWellNova to share personal messages from members of our community in support of COVID-19 testing and vaccination.

We’ve gathered #MyWhy videos from community leaders to help others understand their journey to the decision to get the COVID vaccine. You can do your part, too. Talk to family members who haven’t yet gotten the vaccine about your #MyWhy. Your voice could be the most important one they hear.

Increasing vaccination rates in our community will help keep our local economy strong, our families and friends safe, and the future filled with promise.
