Our goal is to be a broad, flexible philanthropic vehicle to serve you and our community. Through the Community Foundation, you can help your community in many ways using one of the many options listed below. As with all charitable giving, be sure to check with your financial advisors. If you are adding to your existing fund, please be sure to let us know if you wish to apply your gift as permanent endowment or held for short-term grantmaking.
We specialize in offering an online giving portal for all of our funds (a great way to philanthropically celebrate birthdays, and other gift events). Just visit our “Give Now” page to see the inspiring line up and variety of our funds—it’s easy to search for a specific fund, too.
Checks should be made out to “Community Foundation LNFC”. In the memo area, name the fund you wish to support or enclose a note to let us know which fund you wish to support. Checks may be mailed to one of two addresses: PO Box 342, Leesburg, VA, 20178, or PO Box 402, Middleburg, VA 20118.
A wire transfer can easily be set up to safely and seamlessly land your donation into our accounting systems. Get in touch with Amy Owen, [email protected] or call (703) 779-3505 X1.
A gift of stock is a savvy philanthropic opportunity. You are able to reduce appreciated assets and capital gains while supporting causes matching your personal vision. To make a gift of stock, we’ll provide you with transfer information. Get in touch with Amy Owen, [email protected] or call (703) 779-3505 X1.
Charitable IRA Rollover
Based on age, a gift directly from your IRA plan trustee or administrator can be a wonderful option to a qualified fund within the Community Foundation. Talk with us before executing your tax-advantaged charitable contribution by reaching out to Amy Owen, [email protected] or call (703) 779-3505 X1.

When donating crypto, you receive a tax deduction for the fair market value of the crypto, and you avoid the capital gains tax you would have incurred if you had sold the crypto and then made a donation. That means you’re able to donate more—and deduct more on your tax return.
The Community Foundation accepts gifts of cryptocurrency through Every.org, a 501(c)(3) designed to assist nonprofits with accepting charitable gifts like cryptocurrency and doing so applying a phenomenal small fee of 1%. That means 99% of your gift comes to the Community Foundation.
Every.org immediately liquidates your gift and transfers funds to the Community Foundation. Every.org will issue you all the necessary paperwork to substantiate your gift for tax purposes, including filing 8282.
Let us know about your intended gift by reaching to Amy Owen, [email protected]. We’ll know how to put your gift to work by adding it to a new personalized legacy fund, add it to an existing fund, or provide support for one of the Community Foundation’s programs.
Remember, with your cryptocurrency gift of $500 or more, you’ll need to file a Form 8283 with the IRS. With gifts of $5,000 or more, a qualified appraisal is required for submission with your 8283 (Every.org can recommend qualified appraisers).
