The Community Foundation for Loudoun and Fauquier Counties has announced a series of changes: a name change, a new headquarters, and the next slate of board leadership.
Kirsten Langhorne, a long-time member of 100WomenStrong (a giving circle within the Community Foundation) and Lansdowne resident is the newly elected president of the all-volunteer board of directors, with John Rust from Leesburg named as Vice President. Both have been with the board for years.
As part of the Community Foundation’s emphasis to serve all of Loudoun County, Executive Director Amy Owen and the organization’s headquarters have been relocated to Leesburg within Healthworks’ Fort Evans Road facility. Healthworks is a nonprofit Community Health Center providing medical, dental and behavioral health care to people from all backgrounds, of all ages, and of all incomes. They are the medical home to over 9,000 Loudoun County residents, most of whom are low income. The Community Foundation has assumed vacant offices on the first floor.
“We not only appreciate the hospitality of one of Loudoun County’s leading charities for office space,” said Owen, “we will benefit from several meeting areas and rooms within the building as we flip-flop board meetings between Leesburg and Middleburg.”
The name change was adopted by the Community Foundation Board of Directors to better explain the grantmaking group’s service footprint.
