Forward Turn is a youth-led charitable grantmaking program that takes a “forward turn” to benefit communities in Loudoun and Fauquier Counties. Forward Turn is a partnership with the Loudoun County Youth Advisory Council and funded by the S. Murray Rust and Mary H.C. Rust Student Philanthropy Project endowment of the Community Foundation for Loudoun and Northern Fauquier Counties.
