Grantmaking Overview


The Community Foundation maintains a solid commitment to build a strong and sustainable network of local nonprofits. Community organizations are important partners in understanding the needs of our community and where our collective resources can be useful. We not only provide funding opportunities, but also facilitate collaborations, connections and leadership programs that help nonprofits achieve greater efficiency and effectiveness. We are the largest community foundation in Virginia and the third-largest in the southeast — giving us the potential to do even greater good.
